Atlanta, GA - Brasilia, Brazil: Large, sprawling cities that are inland and have similar climates. Both have struggled with drought.

Grand Rapids, MI - Paramaribo, Suriname: cities with Dutch influence

And both have large Brazilian populations.

I would also add San Diego, CA - Santiago, Chile: Similar climates, similar architecture, similar geographical features (coast and mountains), and they even sound alike.

Denver, CO - La Paz, Bolivia: High elevation (Denver is a mile high, while La Paz is about 12,000 ft. in elevation). Their skylines look similar, and their roughly the same size.

Los Angeles - Buenos Aires: Modern architecture, location in a wide, flat basin surrounded by mountains

Miami - Rio de Janeiro: Popular beaches and wild nightlife scene

I came up with the Denver-La Paz comparison.

Good ones though.

I was thinking Washington DC = Brasilia, Brazil. Both were 'planned cities' created with the intention of making them their respective nation's capital.
I was also actually thinking Manaus = Atlanta. Both are the largest cities in their regions, they rank similarly in metro size in their respective countries (Manaus is Brazil's 8th largest metro, Atlanta the US's 10th), and they are both dynamic, rapidly growing metros adept at attracting new business.
