As a Brazilian, I´d highly recommend Tropicaldaydreams blog for the ones interested in Brazilian culture and life.

This is an excellent blog about Brazil that goes deep into some issues such as cultural differences, economic issues in Brazil, as well as in-depth reflections on Brazil´s problems, such as incarceration. The author, Barbara Lowenstein, has lived with her husband in Brazilian paradise, Búzios, in the state of Rio de Janeiro, for a decade. So, she brings to her blog a fresh expatriate view of the country with an insider perspective. This is a blog that has much to contribute to understanding what Brazil is about, demystifying stereotypes and getting to a more solid view of the country´s beauties and socio-economic challenges.
