WOW!! What a beautiful city... just so charming, colourful and vibrant. To the best of my recollection, I've never heard of Londrina, so thank you very much for posting these wonderful photos. Really want to visit some day!

ROLÂNDIA (56,352 people, 20 km west of Londrina), named after the warrior Roland (Germanic mythology). Rolândia organizes one of the biggest Oktoberfest in Brazil and hold a German consulate. The city is also part of Londrina Metropolitan Area. Rolândia is mainly German, Italian and Portuguese, but has also a sizeable Japanese community.

"où j'essaye" or "où j'essaie", both can be written. "d'apprendre (le) français"
My teacher of French at the high school was Brazilian, she came from the region Sul

Rolândia produces beer ? Interesting photos, thank you for sharing them.

Merci! I knew about "j'essaye", my mistake, but I didn't know about "d'apprende".

About the beer, not only Rolândia, but also Londrina produces some artesanal beer. However, the Brazilian, even in South (Paraná, Santa Catarina and Rio Grande do Sul states), drinks the regular big labels. Londrina and the rest of Northern Paraná, are the less "European" part of South (Região Sul in Portuguese), but still hold huge immigrants parades.

Seems like a beautiful place to live...just appears so laid back, and the cultural diversity in the region is also very interesting.

For sure. Southern Brazil is widely know for its huge European heritage, specially Italian and German but also Portuguese, Spanish, Polish, Ukrainian, Dutch, Russian, Lithuanian, etc. Londrina in addition, has also its big Japanese community, one of the biggest in the world. I'll post some photos of Londrina Matsuri Festival, when Japanese celebrate the beggining of spring.

Differently of other Southern German brazilian communities, Londrina-Rolândia ones, is quiet knew. Those people arrived from Europe in 30's and 40's because the WWII. So, we don't have a traditional German architecture like in Santa Catarina.

Ah, "Hansel and Gretel" in Portuguese is "João e Maria".

There are so many Brazils inside the country.

It's kind of sad that foreigners only know the "Rio de Janeiro" Brazil. Futebol, samba e mulatas...

Pitty for the ones that only resemble Rio for soccer, samba and mulatas... being the most cliché and non interresting part of this cultural hub

By the way, Brazil is very diverse indeed...with this continental area, that makes sense...

but its areas can not be analysed steretypically,...

And yes, Londrina is very beautiful, as well as many other countryside metropolis that are booming right now...
