I always think that South America's and Africa's southern "ends" are closer together latitude-wise than they really are. So in my head Brazil appeared further North to me than some of these African nations. Plus I thought Paraguay and even Bolivia would be further South than Brazil which is probably why I missed it. Guess I usually just look at the big part of Brazil and forget about the rest.
