BRA_No todos los brasileños son cariocas

How many times have we heard or read about Brazil as “the carioca country” or a Brazilian referred to as a carioca when he may perfectly be from Sao Paulo? We would need plenty of hands with their fingers to count them. Let’s set the record straight once and for all: Carioca means a natural of Rio de Janeiro and should be used only for those born in that city, the capital of the namesake state. Those born in Rio de Janeiro state are called fluminenses, just the way paulistas are those born in the state of Sao Paulo and…
