Happy birthday, Brazil!

Yesterday, September 7,  Brazil commemorated 192 years of independence from Portugal. Last Thursday the amazing PTA moms put together a spectacular “7 de setembro” fair. It was filled with typical Brazilian foods including tapioca, açai, pão de queijo, and brigadeiros. This blogger was overwhelmed by the immense amount of food, and even able to convince a few of her teachers to let her go to the fair during class. Honestly, this year outdid previous events: From the colorful decorations to delicious food, the parents have yet again filled up both our stomachs and brains, as many non-Brazilians broadened their perspectives by trying new foods.
