Bom Dia! Hi there! My name is Shelby, and I am a Fulbright researcher in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. I hope you'll join me and my family as we explore Brazilian culture!


This week I want to share my trip to Rio de Janeiro with you. This is one of the most famous cities in Brazil! Come find out what it is like!


Where do our thoughts and opinions about something come from? My ideas about Brazil were based on my prior experiences and knowledge. Now that I am in Brazil, my perspective has changed.

Field Notes

Brazil is famous for its environment- from its beaches to the rainforest. In the state where I live, the environment is mountainous. This means there are lot of beautiful views!
