I had my first Feijoada and Cerveja last Friday in Santa Teresa. As expected, these food items did not disappoint me. Typically, I am always eager to practice the Portuguese I have been learning during my time at Rio & Learn. Speaking Portuguese is a lot harder, however, when you’re mouth is filled with amazing Brazilian cuisine. Though I might not have gotten a ton of practice speaking Portuguese during the meal, the activities directly following provided me numerous additional chances. While exploring Rio’s historical center and beholding its magnificent beauty, I was able to discuss with Igor numerous phrases and colloquialisms used by Cariocas. It was an evening I will surely never forget.

You know it’s the student’s first Feijoada when they say OMG, that’s f*** delicious! We couldn’t eat anymore but we didn’t want to stop as well. The Feijoada gave us a lot of energy to walk around Santa Teresa, make some awesome shots being artistic at Parque das Ruínas and practice a lot of Portuguese all the way!
