Setting Description:
Brazil is a country of extraordinary size, covering almost half of South America , granting it an expressive cultural diversity and a huge variety of landscapes and people, creating deep impressions on its visitors. Brazilian people come from a complex ethnic mix of Indians, Portuguese, Africans and other cultures. Their cultural identity is based on values of tolerance, solidarity, and happiness of living and also the taste of ancient things. The Brazilians are lovely hosts who love to laugh, sing and dance. It is also a complex country, contradictory, unfair and unequal, reflecting one of the highest concentrations of income in the world. Less than 1% of Brazil's population owns more than 42% of money and property. But, at the same time, it gives people lots of opportunities to improve.
Cost:
The cost for a 2 week programme is: £665, 3 weeks is £810, 4 weeks is £890, 5 weeks is £965, 6 weeks is £1040, 7 weeks is £1115 and 8 weeks is £1190. For every extra week, the cost increases by approx £75-£80. So the cost for 24 weeks is £2410. Please email Victoria for prices of other durations. * Please note if you join during the Carnival week in Feb/March, there is an extra £150 premium added to your programme cost due to high lodging prices during that week.
