Feira de São Cristóvão
Last Friday we went with our students to know the Northeast Brazilian traditions at Feira de São Cristóvão (Centro Luiz Gonzaga de Tradições Nordestinas). We walked around getting to know typical products and music from this huge region of Brazil that it’s plenty of different traditions that you don’t find in other parts of Brazil.
Students practized together, and with locals, the forró dance that they learned last Tuesday. We had dinner together with typical Northeastern food and some caipirinhas and geladas (cold beer). Some of our students get amazed tasting the delicious goiaba’s caipirinha and maracujá’s caipirinha. It was great to get together as we practized all the Portuguese that they learned last week.
Everybody is improving, we are proud and happy!
