Argentina and Brazil
We are excited to share that HOLATAM 2023/24 will visit three different cities in two countries. Our journey will take us to Buenos Aires, São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.
The country is located in the southern part of South America. After Brazil, it is the second largest country on the continent.
It is divided into four regions - the Andes, the Pampas, the North and Patagonia. Argentina is a country of striking diversity, and incredible landscapes ranging from tropical rainforests in the north to the sweeping plains of Patagonia in the south. To the west, the formidable Andes Mountains provide a breathtaking backdrop.
In Argentina, a large part of the population originally stems from Europe and the country does not have a lot of native people. According to National Geographic, only 5% of all inhabitants are natives.
The capital of this charming country, Buenos Aires, is a captivating fusion of old-world elegance and contemporary dynamism. The city's streets are graced with architectural marvels, a testament to the influence of European immigrants. With its vibrant culture and passionate people, Buenos Aires stands as an alluring destination and cultural epicentre of Argentina which is why we will visit it during our Seminar Abroad.
Bom dia Brasil
Brazil, the largest country in South America, captivates with its stunning diversity of landscapes and cultures. From the lush rainforests of the Amazon basin in the north to the endless sandy beaches along the Atlantic coast in the south, the country offers a fascinating array of natural wonders. Within this diversity lie two of Brazil's most iconic cities: Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo.
Rio de Janeiro, often referred to as the "Cidade Maravilhosa" or the "Marvelous City," is reknown for its natural beauty. The Pão de Açúcar (Sugarloaf Mountain) and the Cristo Redentor loom majestically over the city, providing spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean. The beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema are globally celebrated for their vibrant atmosphere and crystal-clear waters. Rio is also the heart of the Brazilian Carnival, a spectacle of colourful costumes, infectious music, and joyful dancing. Rio Carnival begins on the Friday before Ash Wednesday.
São Paulo, on the other hand, is the economic capital of Brazil and one of the largest cities in the world. Here, modern life pulsates to the rhythm of businessmen, artists, and immigrants from all corners of the globe. The city is known for its vibrant art and music scene, as well as its culinary diversity.
Both, Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, are reflections of Brazil's impressive diversity and vitality. They blend history, culture, and modern urbanity in fascinating ways, making them essential destinations for our seminar abroad.
