Brazilians generally have great manners.

I arrived at the apartment building earlier, approached the lift, and two teenage girls were getting in. One held the door open for me *before* getting in herself, both wished me a good afternoon, and both said goodbye when they got out. This isn`t unusual either, as people often say good morning/afternoon/evening and goodbye when getting in and out of lifts, in buildings etc. In the UK you`d be lucky to get a word, and when I lived in Switzerland you`d be lucky to be even acknowledged.
