Olά From Goiânia! is the title of a new travel blog by Carmichael Library's own Mercedes Jones. Mercedes is one of three UM students studying this semester at the Federal University of Goiás, in Brazil. Mercedes is sharing her photos and adventures on her blog, and she has graciously allowed us to post some of her photos here on the library's blog as well. For the remainder of the Spring term, check back here every few weeks as we look in on what Mercedes is learning and experiencing in South America's largest and most populous country.
Some of our readers may have met Montevallo's Brazilian visitors--Melina Minaya, Karen Faraco, Ian Ferreira, and Thiago Moyano--this past fall. Melina and Ian came from the Federal University of Goiás, and Karen and Thiago came from the Federal University of Viçosa. You can read more about Montevallo's UM-Brazil student exchange, as well as other study abroad programs, in the Fall 2008 edition of UM's Foreign Language Department newsletter.
