A Weekend of Wonders: IES OrientationRio de Janeiro, Spring 2013
Besides getting cell phones, touring the partner universities and taking language placement tests, our four day orientation also brought us to landmark locations around the city. We greatly appreciated the opportunity to see and learn about Cristo Redentor on Corcovado mountain, the Botanical Garden, and the final Carnivale celebration known as the Parade of Champions or “Sambodromo”. Orientation was amazing to say the least, and a great introduction to the magnificent city of Rio de Janeiro.
Also, mad props to Joel Hilario for the Sambodromo footage!
