Our guest speaker this week was our exchange student from Brazil, Duda. She gave a wonderful presentation on her country including a regional survey of Brazil’s five major regions – the North Amazon basin (home of 20% of the world’s biodiversity), the North East, Central West (Brasilia), the Southeast (Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Graza) and the South (Iquazu Falls). Duda detailed her favorite Brazilian foods, including black beans, fried bread and churrasco (BBQ), as well as sharing her favorite sport (soccer) and her favorite festival, Carnival. Lots of questions followed.
