There was an incident, discussed in this forum and others, about 4-5 years ago where IIRC a US citizen was having problems with his boat being seized, allegedly illegally, in Brazil and the games our governments were playing. Or not. I know that put a very solid "not in my lifetime" note in many cruiser's books. Not that the US and EU don't have their own corruption problems and ghettos, but Brazil...long coast, big distances, charming attractions but still a formidable undertaking for most cruisers.

copa, that sounds like the one. It left a very poor impression, regardless of the facts.

We have a saying in the US: There are always at least THREE sides to every story. His side, her side, and the truth.
