Alex’s Adventures in Brazil… Part 2

Once again, Brazil is turning out to be one of the BEST TRIPS OF MY LIFE!! I can’t believe that I am actually here in Brazil, and this entire experience of being in a new country / continent / hemisphere, has really made me realize how lucky I truly am!

On Tuesday, we had a Portuguese lesson at Via Mundo. The lesson was very helpful but also very confusing. (It was a good thing that we took notes…)

The next day was definitely very exciting and very long. The day started with a nice arts and crafts workshop at Crescimento School. Which then gave us some time for either classes or time with you host family. After that, we spent the rest of the day playing beach volleyball & climbing up a HUGE sand dune by the beach.

After one of the best sleeps I have had in a long time, I got up to start the next chapter in this great trip. I pretty much just sat around and enjoyed Brazil for most of the day, and then I went to Dad’s home stay where we worked on a presentation that we will be giving to the Brazilians all about Canada. Then we went to the Lions Palace which is the state’s government building. This was by far the most beautiful building I have ever seen. (The only downside was that we weren’t allowed to take any pictures while on the tour.) Next we went on a little walk through a little market area before going to a drumming and dancing workshop which was really cool!

That takes me right to today where we will tell stories at the Maple Bear Canadian School. (For kids around grade primary.) And a volley ball game tonight which is sure to be fun.
