Lisbon's Expo '98
Rambling over seven hills--like Rome and San Francisco--Portugal's capital city is one of Europe's most beautiful and most unusual. In this EXPO year, hordes of tourists are expected from all of its sister nations in the European Union. All of which have impressive pavilions on view at the fair site. Not to overlook the hundreds of thousands--millions even--which are hoped for from around the world. But, after having made Herculean efforts to improve transport and cultural venues in the city itself, Lisbon is hoping tourists won't neglect its own indigenous attractions. The truth is that Lisbon and Portugal provide the last real "affordable" holiday in Europe. Becoming Europe's Culture City in 1974 gave Lisbon a good excuse to spruce up many of its marvelous historic churches, palaces, monuments, and residences. And now that historic restoration is really paying off. So this is an excellent time to explore this remarkable city, EXPO '98, and the "Undiscovered Country" that is Portugal.

"Brazil: Territory, Land, Work, Culture" is no traditional history lesson.
This impressive colorful new book could be added to your library. A wide exposure of this volume should also rapidly increase the numbers of North Americans who will book flights to Rio, outings to Brazilia, and boat-trips up the Amazon. An excellent introduction to the World that is Brazil--and of Brazil to the World--it was originally published solely for distribution through Brazilian Embassies and Consulates. Its purpose was--and is--to reach as wide as possible an audience of people interested in learning more about Brazil: especially teachers and "opinion-makers." Our reviewer, Glenn Loney, tells you how to request a copy.
