Portuguese students at Biblioteca nacional.

Ieri am vizitat Biblioteca National din Rio de Janeiro. Este cea mai mare biblioteca din America Latina, iar cladirea este absolut minunata in stil neoclasic, cu elemente eclectice. Daca iubiti literatura trebuie sa vizitati colectia impresionanta a bibliotecii. Dupa aceasta vizita am fost la o teresa in piata Cinelândia unde am baut un delicios suc de fructe natural si ne-am cunoscut mai bine colegii. Va recomend cu drag aceasta experienta!

Who said that Rio de Janeiro doesn’t have tourist options on a rainy day? We took this rainy day and decided to visit Biblioteca Nacional, the seventh world’s biggest library, and the biggest library of Latin America. It was a very cultural RioLIVE!, we could talk about Brazilian and Portuguese Literature making some comparisons between them. The students loved the place’s architecture and practiced their Portuguese trying to read old texts that were at the exhibition. But our activity didn’t stop there, their hunger for more cultural things was still growing, so we went to Centro Cultural Caixa where there was an exhibition and the students compared it to the other one talking in Portuguese about them.
After the library and Centro Cultural da Caixa we went to cinelândia to enjoy a nice warm up of the carioca carnival, there was a small parade in front of Biblioteca Nacional and we enjoyed a lot. Everybody was very excited talking in Portuguese and having some drinks and then it started raining, but it didn’t bring us down and danced even with the rain. It was an amazing afternoon.
Come to know Rio de Janeiro taking part in our RioLIVE! Activities.
