Winterim: I had the privilege of being on the Brazil winterim, titled “Sustainability in Practice”
Places/companies visited on Winterim: We spent the majority of our time in and around Sao Paolo and Rio de Janiero.  We did 10+ company visits and had opportunities to take in the local culture as well.
What did you love: Our company visits were interesting and valuable.  The lush landscape, warm people, music and beaches were awesome as well.
Any surprises: The beauty of the landscape and people of Brazil.
Favourite memory of the Winterim: Favorite memory of the trip was a large, group dinner on the side of a river in the dense forest.
