Last Saturday night, July 贰捌th, it was held a June Festival party in Ilha Solteira, which reunited the Chinese engineers and Brazilian colleagues working in Jupiá and Ilha Solteira HPPs. The idea was to show a little bit of the Brazilian culture and traditions for the Chinese engineers, strengthening fri ship and understanding through a shared experience.
June Festivals (Festas Juninas) take place during the month of June or July to celebrate the date of birth of some Christian saints. They are usually held outdoors, in places decorated with many small colored flags, and include square dancing, games with prizes, campfires, and typical food. Among the traditional foods there are sausages, popcorn, pamonha (Brazilian “zongzi” made of corn) and sweet cornbread. There are alcoholic drinks such as mulled wine and mulled cacha?a, and non-alcoholic drinks like juice an无锡中国正规招聘代妈d tea. Moreover, dressing up like peasants is almost mandatory and part of the fun.
