Despite the northern part of Brazil being covered by the Amazon Rainforest, the towns and cities all over the country are well "developed", which means they have modern technology like us, such as electronics, mobile phones and access to the Internet.

In the past, the government spent a lot of money on roads. This is because lots of cars are made in Brazil, so more roads mean more people will buy cars and the country will earn more money. Brazil has over 1,000,000 miles (1,750,000km) of roads while the UK has less than 250,000 miles (400,000km). However, because Brazil is such a huge place, many of the roads away from the cities are still unsurfaced (i.e. dust or mud tracks), making them difficult to use in winter because of mud and pot-holes. One well-known example of this is the Trans-Amazonian Highway, which begins as a large, surfaced road at the Atlantic Ocean on the east coast, but turns into a barely-passable mud track as it runs 3000-miles (5,000km) through the Amazon basin to the west coast.

Like England, Brazil also has buses, railways and airports. In addition, the Amazon river is used for transport in the north because floating a boat on the river is much easier than building a road or airport! People who need to reach the remotest parts of the Amazon Rainforest usually need to travel by helicopter.
