Travel Time

Today we have spent a lot of time on the road as we prepare for many hours of flights. We started out traveling from Intumbiara to Brasilia with a short pit stop in Goiania at Juarez's, to drop him off and have a coffee break. We soon were back on the road. It took between 5-6 hours to make our way to Brasilia.

Once we arrived in Brasilia we went to a mall, named Pier 21, to enjoy lunch at the food court. From there we made our way to the middle of Brasilia to get a birds eye view of the city from the TV tower. There is a market near the tower so we took this opportunity to pick up some souvenirs. After this we hit a supermarket and then planned to take a stroll along the lake and see the city, but rain changed those plans. We made our way to a mall and shared conversation while relaxing.


We have now checked into the airport and are preparing to board our flight. While at the airport we met a gentleman from Illinois who came to Brazil on a similar study abroad opportunity in 2000 and since started farming 30,000 acres in Brazil along with his operation in Illinois. Which one of these students will start farming in Brazil as part of their operation? It was truly a great time with great students!

Going to Brazil would be an amazing experience. The animals there are incredible, to get a chance to see a few of the exotic creatures would be stupendous. The different kinds of plants growing in the forests would be interesting to see and compare with what we see here. Going to Brazil would be an awesome experience, but it's impressive that the gentleman was managing both 30,000 acres in Brazil and operating in Illinois.

I had thought to go to Brazil before. It would be an amazing experience for anyone to witness the variety of agriculture in other countries. The practices they use and their methods of farming or raising livestock probably differ from what we do in the United States.

I think it would so cool to go to Brazil sometime, because it would be so cool to see the different types of agriculture in other countries. It would be so cool to see the different ways they farm in the other countries around the world compared to what we do here in the united states.

I know some people personally who live in Brazil, that just moved there not to long ago. I think that Brazil would be a very eye opening experience because the different way they do things whether it be agricultural, or the way they produce things all around. I thought it was very interesting how they are able to produce 700,000 liters of oil in one day.

It would be amazing to go to Brazil, I believe it would be very cool to see the different types of agriculture throughout the world. Agriculture differs so much in different countries, it would be interesting to see how it compares and contrast from agriculture in the US.

Going to Brazil would be exciting and fun because you could explore a lot of agriculture in your time being there

I believe traveling abroad is very helpful for all sorts of people involved in agriculture, because there is so much to be learned and research what they do with agriculture in there country. Being involved in Agriculture every chance you have to learn something new about agriculture is an opportunity a person needs to take.

I think that going to Brazil would be a great opportunity for students, to see the different kinds of farming and agriculture they have. Also, I think it'd be fun to hang around and see how the people live and what their everyday lives consist of.

I think that it would be vary interesting to learn agriculture outside of the us.

Agriculture of other nations could help us learn about crops not grown in the states
