Great summary of one month in Brazil:
This professional and cultural exchange was truly a once in a lifetime experience, where new friendships were formed, perspectives and perceptions shifted, social collaboration took place through community development, and personal and professional growth resulted. We immersed ourselves in the culture, learned common Portuguese phrases, sampled local cuisine, learned to ‘go with the flow,’ and became Brasileiros at heart. The relationships developed with client partners and the camaraderie built among members of the Brasil 13 team will last a lifetime.
Some of our most memorable moments include exploring Minas Gerais – weekend excursions to Ouro Preto and Inhotim, surprise birthday dinner party, Thursday samba nights, kilo lunches, churrascaria dinners, playing capoeira, sampling various pastéis, Timeline exercises with Bruno, nights out in Savassi, and weeknight bonding sessions by the pool.
