The Brazilian envy of things American has finally expressed itself in architecture. Though ostensibly part of Rio de Janeiro, Barra (as it's usually called) looks and feels much like an American beach city, like L.A. or Miami Beach. Streets are wide and filled with 4*4s because in Barra -- as in L.A. -- only somebody who's a nobody walks.   The whole neighbourhood orbits around the Maracana stadium and the university right next to it, UERJ (State University of Rio de Janeiro).
