“Now is the time to visit Brazil,” says Ambassador of Brazil in Atlanta, Mr. Hermano Villa Lobos, as the development in cities such as Salvador, Rio de Janeiro and Porto Alegre prepare to accommodate up to two million tourists for the Rio Olympics in 2016. Ambassador Lobos will share insight on the progress of public transportation and infrastructure, and how these improvements will have a positive impact on not only the future of tourism in Brazil, but also the quality of life for Brazilians.
Attendees will be able to enjoy a churrasco, or barbecue, feast, which will include unlimited offerings of meats, salads and sides typically found in Brazil.
