Is it Brasil or Brazil?

The Olympics 2016 are now on, so a good time to raise this interesting subject.

Having lived in various parts of South Americas,Brasil, for at least a year, I can confirm that as far as the locals are concerned there is no Z in the name Brasil.

File image, my thanks for it use.

That is the huge Maracana stadium in the distance.

Please write Brasil next time! 

I have a match box here ,made by OLHO, it is marked Industria Brasilia.

Justin who is a regular viewer of this blog found a very interesting web site on the subject.

He and myself still us the spelling Brasil (smile )
