Tate's Journey to Brazil

Current Location

São Paulo, Brazil

São Paulo is the biggest city in Brazil and all of South America. Join me as I explore this exciting, crazy and diverse place while learning about its unique way of funding and creating theatre!


I had a very social week here in São Paulo! I got to enjoy the outdoors by hiking the tallest mountain in the city, attended the Pride parade, and opened our home to new friends from other cities!


So much has happened in such a short amount of time! I'd love to share some of my reflections on how I have grown during the six weeks of our virtual exchange.

Field Notes

Families in Minas Gerais have a Sunday tradition I never encountered in São Paulo. Let's learn about the origins of frango caipira (frahn-goo kai-pee-rah), or "country-style chicken."


While going through my photos, I realized that in addition to a lot of sunset and nighttime photos I also have some photos of nightlife--that is, different theaters!
