After Zumba Class
It’s hard to believe we have only been here for almost a week. It seems like we have been here for much longer with the things we do each day. Even after being here for almost a week we still try a hand full of new things each day and learn something new about the city or culture of Brazil. Everyone has gotten a lot closer to each other and more comfortable with speaking. Last night the group played water polo with a class and then walked to a burger place to eat dinner.

Making Brigadeiros
I don't like burgers so I ordered a chicken sandwich. It was nothing like I expected. It was shredded with corn on it and I loved it. Today, we watched more presentations from the younger grades comparing our city and their city and also Bueno Aires. After the presentations the UA group joined a Zumba class which was very tiring but very fun. After Zumba we learned to make brigadeiro, which is a chocolate candy that looks somewhat like a truffle. We spent the rest
of the day joining our host students in their last two classes: biology and writing. Joining them in classes is not as exciting as the other things we have done but it is interesting to see their class environment and compare to our. I am excited to see what the rest of our trip has in store.
