Rio’s Pão de Açúcar (Sugarloaf)

Sometimes people ask me why we take the Global Connections students to Rio de Janeiro instead of São Paulo.  I admit, when it comes to business, São Paulo plays a bigger role than Rio de Janeiro.  And, if the program were longer, we’d have no choice but to go to São Paulo.  However, the truth is that 5 days in Rio are better than 5 days in São Paulo.  We’ll have plenty of the legitimate reasons to be in Rio (petroleum industry for example).  But it’s hard to beat Ipanema, Pão de Açúcar, and Corcovado.
