Deep Brazil is an X-ray of a country larger than life, immensely attractive to tourists, immigrants and investors, and culturally fascinating. Created in 2006, it reached 1 million pageviews. It hasn’t been updated for a few years now, but the content was recently curated to display its best contents.

It is published by Regina Scharf, a Brazilian journalist now based in Portland, Oregon, USA.  Lately. she has been writing historical fiction to better understand her own country. Her debut fiction is a mystery novel about a confederate found dead in an African-Brazilian ritual offering in Rio, in 1908. Now she is working on a second historical fiction, set in the Atlantic rainforest.
