Last week I stopped by the the OU in Rio and Puebla table in the Union building. In case you haven’t heard, there are two new OU centers in South America, and they sound awesome! They’re set up like the Arezzo center, where you take OU classes from OU professors, in English. Plus they are in South America, which is beautiful and on the less expensive end of study abroad destinations.
I haven’t actively had South America on my radar for study abroad, but I have always wanted to go to Brazil. My father lived in Sao Paolo as a missionary for our church for two years, and is still quite fluent in Portuguese. He wanted me and my brothers to learn it when we were children but we never had a good way to learn it. It would be fun for me to see why he loves it there so much.
I would hope that the salsa in Brazil is better than the salsa they had at the table. I have a higher spice tolerance than many Americans, but there was none at all in that salsa. At least the queso and the chips were good! I need to learn to make queso.
