From samba beats to sunset surfs, everything is colorful in this tropical paradise
Following our summer term in Canada, we next head to Brazil. While Canada is renowned for its friendly and polite demeanor, Brazil captivates with its vibrant and energetic approach to life. This lively nation is a kaleidoscope of samba rhythms, bustling cafés, and architectural wonders that showcase its diverse cultural heritage.
Like Canada, Brazil will offer plenty of opportunities to explore the outdoors and turn its natural environments into our classroom. Environmental science lessons could be held on its beaches in the morning, followed by physical education activities in the afternoon. And for those not so keen on sand in their shoes, Brazil’s staggered terrains will offer plenty of opportunities to hike, bike, and learn.
Our exploration of Brazil will also delve deep into its rich cultural tapestry, woven from African, European, and Indigenous influences. We’ll likely immerse ourselves in the local culture by participating in vibrant festivals, visiting insightful museums and cultural centers, and interacting with local artisans who are the custodians of Brazil’s traditional arts and crafts.
One thing is for sure: there won’t be a dull moment during our time in this colorful nation.
