Brazil is the largest country in South America, and occupies almost half of the continent with more people than all of the other South America nations.   Brazil has the largest tropical rain forests, which take up most of the northern part of Brazil. The Amazon and other rivers wind through steamy jungles and large amounts of enormous trees.  Mountains rise up north of the forest, and borders the Atlantic Ocean and the southwest.  Fertile farmlands and grazing areas occupy the southern part of Brazil, and long, beautiful white beaches take up the entire Atlantic Ocean coast of Brazil.  About half of the country's population are of European ancestry - mostly German, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish.  There are many Brazilians of mixed African and European ancestry, of which only one percent are original Brazilians.  Brazil began printing its stamps in 1843.
