Day 146: Group tour

I know I’ve already posted about the Museu Afro Brasil (see Day 106), but on Friday, Day 146 of my challenge to indulge in all that is Brazilian, I went as part of a group with a tour guide.

Yes, you can walk around any museum in any country and read the exhibit plates and display descriptions. But having a guide is so much more enlightening, especially on this particular topic. While we only covered a part of this amazing museum, I learned so much more about the origins of Brazilian culture, religions and behaviors than I would have spending days on my own, regardless of the language. For foreigners and Brazilians alike, I highly recommend grabbing a group together and getting a guided tour of this and any of the Sao Paulo museums that offer it. Lucky for us, we  got a fabulous, gracious guide who also spoke English. Best of all, tour and all, it was free (entrance is always free at the Museu Afro Brasil – FYI).

A group tour makes for a truly exceptional experience.
