TOPIC STARTER
Curitiba Nov 7, 2009

At our PowWow of today, several possible venues were mentioned: apart from the Big Smoke of São Paulo, other suggestions included Rio de Janeiro, Campinas, São José do Rio Preto, Porto Alegre and Curitiba. This last city is my favourite, as it is a pleasant tourist attraction and has a significant immigrant population, people who could become translators. One added attraction of Curitiba is the spectacular train ride down to Morretes, which could be a socialising event either during or after the conference. As for food, the highlight is the "rodízio de massas" in the Santa Felicidade district.

Hello to all! Nov 7, 2009

I'm so sorry I couldn't make it today... I'm sure you had lots of funicon_smile.gif

Paul, I like the idea of Curitiba. I would also be happy to attend the conference in Campinas or Porto Alegre...

However, right now, I'm totally Lost in Translationicon_redface.gif


Have a great Sunday, everyone!
