Welcome to Brazil! “Meu Brasil, Brasileiro!!”

By  the Au Pair from Brazil, Fernanda F.

It is really a pleasure for me to talk about Brazil, where I was born, where I learned a lot of things and where it is full of joy. My name is Fernanda, I am 20 years old and I have been here in Philadelphia for 8 months as an Au Pair with Go Au Pair agency. I will tell a little bit more about my country.
Brazilian Au Pair 1I will start talking about the Brazilian food, because it is of the things that I miss more in Brazil. The food in Brazil is very different from American Food. In Brazil, we have several kinds of foods and “FEIJOADA” is a very typical dish in Brazil. The basic ingredients of feijoada are beans with fresh pork or beef and we also make some rice, cabbage, toasted manioc (Farofa in Portuguese) to go with the black beans. It is really a delicious dish that everyone should try. Usually in Brazil the restaurants make Feijoada every single Wednesday and Saturday.
Brazilian Au Pair 2Besides that one of the different things between Brazil and America is the weather, mainly in the winter time when you see that the temperature here in America is 32 degrees Fahrenheit. We have a lot of beautiful beaches in Brazil and you can see the picture below of a famous beach in Brazil, located in Porto de Galinhas, Pernambuco, Brazil:

Another amazing place in Brazil is a statue of Jesus Christ in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; considered the largest Art Deco statue in the world and the 3rd largest statue of Jesus in the world. It is 30 metres (98 ft) tall, not including its 8 metres (26 ft) pedestal, and its arms stretch 28 metres (92 ft) wide. It weighs 635 tonnes (625 long, 700 short tons), and is located at the peak of the 700-metre (2,300 ft) Corcovado mountain in the Tijuca Forest National Park overlooking the city. A symbol of Brazilian Christianity, the statue has become an icon for Rio de Janeiro and Brazil. It is made of reinforced concrete and soapstone, and was constructed between 1926 and 1931.
