France (officially the French Republic) is the largest country in Western Europe and the European Union, and the third-largest in Europe as a whole. With a total population of around 66 millions, it is the third most-populous European country. France is a unitary semi-presidential republic with its capital in Paris, the country's largest city and the main cultural and commercial centre. Official anthem is “La Marseillaise"- Marsylianka. The most popular religion is Roman Catholic church.


As you know, France has got many beautiful places, such as:
-Saint Sernin Basilica in Toulouse- the largest romanesque church in Europe
- Eiffel Tower
- The Louvre
- Notre-Dame de Chartres and Notre-Dame d'Amiens
- Arc de Triomphe (łuktriumfalny)
- La Defense, where a significant number of skyscrapers are located.
Of course, if you will be in France some day, you need to see Côte d'Azur, often known in English as the French Riviera (LazuroweWybrzeże). It is one of the most beautiful and sunny places in France. There are many interesting things to see, for example The Monte Carlo Casino- historical place for gambling.

Brazil - next part

I wrote you about two cities where I was and today I want to tell you something about third and last place - Cabo Frio.

c

So, we stayed there for a week. This city is a place where people from Brazil are resting at their holidays. It’s something like a polish Międzyzdroje. We came to this city because there was a choir’s festival, but we spent a lot of time at the ocean too. We had a lot of concerts there and we were the only one choir with kids and teenagers. When we arrived, director of this festival invited us to his house. Then we were singing songs and ate supper. This man really loved us and he invited to his house day before our departure too. He brought a huge delicious cake especially for us. He and our conductor became friends. We lived near the ocean in the hotel. Every day we were going sunbathing and swimming. It was really hot and sunny. Now, when I’m thinking about weather there it make me sad. In Brazil it’s summer now so it must be very hot. There was a time for shopping of course J. Everyone bought a lot of typical Brazilian flip-flops “Havaianas”. Many people, including me and my friends, got one pair of these shoes from our families from Petropolis or Rio. Of course, I bought them for my family tooJ. Maybe you are thinking about food. So, in my opinion, it’s not delicious. I’m thankful to my mum because she made a lot of Polish food when we arrived to Poland, like pierogi :D. I was eating very little - I was just drinking and eating something like crackers. In Rio our ”mum” bought a lot of fruits, but that was only in Rio. I remember when our conductor ordered a pizza and everyone was happy. I met a lot of fantastic people at this festival. After one concert, when every choir got out from church we started to sing songs together. We learned them some our songs and they learned us their songs. Everyone was happy and we had really amazing time. I love trips with my choir because I’m meeting really fantastic people and feel needed. I just see that singing for people makes me happy. At one concert we disperse throughout the church. When we were singing I saw that many people were crying. That was really awesome.
People in Brazil are very friendly. Many people invited us to schools, institutions.
I wish everyone such a great trip! I hope you will like this short text.
