Sao Paulo, Brazil and Tinfou, Morocco

Sao Paulo, Brazil and Tinfou, Morocco

Part 1: Sao Paolo, Brazil - Sao Paolo, Brazil, with a population of 18-plus million people is larger than most countries. It is the largest city in South America, and after Mexico City, the second largest in the Western Hemisphere. It evokes both rich and overwhelming images, futuristic and backward, positive and negative. There are many wealthy people here, and many poor; also about 20% of the population lives in extreme poverty. Here we meet Mr. Da Silva and Mrs. Fernandez who live in a shantytown, which Brazilians call a "favela." Then we visit Sao Paolo's upper class Garden District and meet Claudine Boussardon who lives there and Jayuson who works there. Next we tour the city's business district and see why Soo Paolo, the financial and industrial capital of Brazil, is indeed a megalopolis of opportunity. Part 2: Tinfou, Morocco - If you truly want to get away from it all, you'll get your wish visiting Tinfou, which has the distinction of being the tallest sand dune in Morocco, about 100 feet tall, and is also the first known isolated dune people encounter before they venture into the great Sahara Desert. Although it is called "an oasis in the Sahara," it is still a harsh environment. Here we learn about camels, nomadic people and sandstorms from Aissa Ouhaddou and Larbi Oulahcen; also Addel-Aziz Oulahcen and Mohamed el Harrachy teach us about the area's palm trees, gardens and water from the Oude Draa. 08/10DE Closed-Captioned IJSCA 15 min.
