I live in the republica , with other 8 girls which is near to the university. The girls in my house were very kind. In general, the brazilians are so good , helpful and concerned. It was very cool to attend the Portuguese language classes which was offered for the foreigners in my college. I loved the famous brazilian cheese bread which is called as pao de queijo , and the brigadeiros (the best chocolate dessert). i would surely miss them when i return back to India. They organised few trips like hiking, and visit to the inhotim museum where we could meet other interns from different countries and know about their culture


Exploring the new cities will give a fresh and renewed mind. This is my first international trip and i made friends from more than 15 countries. Atlast, I found myself ended up as an independent and courageous person. Thankyou so much IAESTE Brazil and IAESTE India for providing me this beautiful opportunity!
