Mac's Journey to Brazil

Current Location

Brasilia, Brazil

My name is Mac and I am currently working in Brasilia, Brazil as an English Teaching Assistant on a Fulbright Scholarship. I look forward to sharing my experiences with you!


This week was my first week in Brasilia. I spent a lot of time walking around, learning where places are and trying diffirent kinds of food.


A walk around my neighborhood.

Field Notes

Despite McDonalds’ distinct North American heritage, McDonalds in Brazil has developed an identity of its own. 


I work at IFB Riacho Fundo which is a federal university. Our campus has a high school course, technical high school course, college courses in English and Portugues, and a techincal college course.
