Global Art and Bumba Meu Boi Festival in Brazil

Journey Coordinator Invitation
Global Art and Bumba Meu Boi Festival in Brazil
June 6 to 20, 2019
My name is Mary Jane DeVault, a member of FF Greater Orlando, Florida, and I am the Journey Coordinator for the upcoming Global Journey to the North of Brazil. Brazil is very special to me, I lived in the south for several years and return as often as possible.
The adventure will consist of two seven-night homestays with FF Fortaleza and FF São Luís. I visited the Fortaleza club in 2015, and I know first hand how gracious and fun-loving these people can be.
Your hosts in Fortaleza will keep you busy showing your their beaches, art, markets, and much more. They will take us on an overnight stay at a hotel in a quaint fishing village. There we can watch the sunset from atop of the sand dunes. Those who wish to can take dune buggy rides along the beaches which is fun. Learning a Brazilian dance with my new friends left me with a special memory.
We will fly to our next club – FF São Luís. Here we will have a very special cultural experience attending the Bumba Meu Boi, a folklore story presented with song and dance. Best of all, we will get to enjoy it with our hosts! This is an event I am certainly looking forward to seeing for the first time.
The most difficult part of the Journey will be saying goodbye to our new Brazilian friends. The people and beauty of this place will capture your heart!

There are not many spaces left on this Journey, so please contact me if you are interested!

In friendship,
Mary Jane DeVault, Journey Coordinator
