If your imagination about countries you have never been to are based on movies, it’s time to get a reality check. It’s because there’s more to Brazil than Rio de Janeiro or the Carnival. Because India is not all about cows and the Taj Mahal. Because England has many cities outside central London. You got the point, right?
