Latin America

This is the year everything will change for Latin America

The moon rises above buildings in Salvador, Brazil December 4, 2012. Salvador, the third-largest city in Brazil is the country's oldest metropolis, but has a lower profile than party hot spot Rio de Janiero or the commercial nerve, Sao Paulo. The laid back coastal city, which lies on the All Saints Bay on the Atlantic Ocean, is the heart of Bahia, the Brazilian province know for its rich African culture. Salvador is gearing up for an influx of sports fans, since it has been chosen as one of Brazil's 12 host cities for the FIFA World Cup in 2014.  Picture taken December 4, 2012.
