Northeastern Fair

Northeastern fair dinner at Feira do Nordeste do Rio

Northeastern fair.

 

Á föstudagskvöldið fór hópur nemenda og kennara málaskólans á stað hér í Ríó sem kallast Feira de São Cristóvão. Þar er boðið upp á ríkulegt úrval matar og drykkja, auk menningar frá norðausturhluta Brasilíu. Þaðan voru miklir fólksflutningar til Ríó á árum áður af fólki sem leitaði atvinnu og betra lífs. Staðurinn er í raun leið fólksins til að fagna uppruna sínum og kynna menningu sína fyrir fólki í Ríó. Lifandi tónlist var á staðnum og margt um manninn. Fólk át, drakk og dansaði og glaumurinn og gleðin réðu ríkjum.

Rio’s Northeastern fair is a good place to know a lot about Brazilian Northeastern without moving from Rio de Janeiro. Last Friday 12 of our students visited the fair by their first time with RioLIVE! We had students from Spain, Switzerland, França, UK, Germany, Colombia, Venezuela and Iceland!

After a bus drive from Copacabana to Rio’s North we arrived to Rio’s Northeastern fair or Centro de Tradições Nordestinas Luiz Gonzaga. With the ticket entrance, every student got a free CD of forró music, so they will be able to listen forró at home.

We walked inside and soon the students started to look out for some typical products, but as we were hungry, nobody did so many shopping and we went to have dinner. We stopped by in a restaurant in front of the main stage music, as we were listening some forró, we had Northeastern food, beers and caipirinhas. The group Bonde do Brasil was playing as we were talking and getting together.

Muito legal!!!
