If someone asks you Vai para a festa? (vah-ee pah-dah ah fehs-tah; Are you going to the party?), you can answer Com certeza!
Vai para a festa? Com certeza!
Definitely!!! We are going to have a lot of fun-a costume party, a Brazilian food cooking class, a costume competition, games, Brazilian music and dance. Brazilian Au Pairs and I am very busy with the preparations.
Now I will tell you a little more about my lindo maravilhosa (marvelous) Brazil.
We are also known for our most important party, one that bring people together in the states of Bahia (Northeast), Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo (Southeast): Carnival.
People get together in the streets or in arenas like Sapucaí (in Rio) and Sambódromo (in Sao Paulo) and watch the parade of floats and dancers present sambas about different themes related to our culture.
Every state and city offer something special, but Brazil’s most important ones are:
Rio de Janeiro: Cristo Redentor.
Brazil’s music is also known worldwide. From Bossa Nova and Tropicalia to Axé and Rock.
From artists like Gilberto Gil
Our most famous Music Festival has traveled around the world and came back to Brazil in 2011.
And brands like: Rosa Chá (Yep, that’s Naomi Campbell)
And, well…Some of us are present in America’s runways and imagination:
My au-pairs friends, come join us!
