About Campinas
Campinas is a Brazilian city of Sao Paulo State,
in the country's Southeast Region. Campinas means
"grass fields" in Portuguese and refers to its
characteristic landscape, which originally
comprised large stretches of dense subtropical
forests, mainly along the many rivers,
interspersed with gently rolling hills covered by
low-lying vegetation. The city was founded on
July 14, 1774, by Barreto Leme, initially as a
simple outpost serving the "Bandeirantes" who
were in search of precious minerals and Indian
slaves. In the first half of the 19th century,
Campinas became a growing population center, with
many coffee, cotton and sugarcane farms. The
construction of a railway linking the city to Sao
Paulo and the costal city of Santos' seaport, in
1867, was very important for its growth. In the
second half of the 19th century, with the
abolition of slavery, farming and
industrialization attracted many foreign
immigrants to replace the lost manpower, mainly
from Italy. As of 2010, Campinas became an
official metropolitan region, with 19
municipalities. The area of the city, according
to the Brazilian Institute of Geography and
Statistics, is 494 miles.
Brazilian History
The history of Brazil arguably starts with
Indigenous Peoples of the Americas, who arrived
thousands of years ago by crossing the Bering
land bridge into Alaska and then moving south.
The Andes and the mountain ranges of northern
South America created a rather sharp cultural
boundary between the settled agrarian
civilizations of the west coast and the
semi-nomadic tribes of the east, who never
developed written records or permanent monumental
architecture. For this reason, very little is
known about the history of Brazil before
1500. The European first to explore Brazil was
Pedro Alvares Cabral on April 22, 1500 under the
sponsorship of Portugal. At the time of European
discovery, the territory of current day Brazil
had as many as 2,000 tribes. The indigenous
peoples were traditionally mostly semi-nomadic
tribes who subsisted on hunting, fishing,
gathering, and migrant agriculture. When the
Portuguese arrived in 1500, the Natives were
living mainly on the coast and along the banks of
major rivers. Initially, the Europeans saw the
natives as noble savages, and miscegenation of
the population began right away.
From the 16th to the 19th centuries, Brazil was a
colony of Portugal. On September 7, 1822, the
country declared its independence from Portugal
and became a constitutional monarchy, the Empire
of Brazil. During the first two centuries of the
colonial period, attracted by the vast natural
resources and untapped land, other European
powers tried to establish colonies in several
parts of Brazilian territory. A military coup in
1889 established a republican government. The
country has seen a dictatorship (1930-1934 and
1937-1945) and a period of military rule
(1964-1985). The civilians fully returned to
power in 1985 when José Sarney assumed the

Campinas is the 10th richest city in Brazil,
representing 0.96 of all Brazilian GDP. The
region hosts more than 10,000 medium and large
companies. The city is also an important and
diverse shopping center, with two of the largest
shopping malls in the country The Iguatemi
Campinas and Shopping Parque Dom Pedro.
Campinas' major economic activities are
agriculture, industry, and commerce. Agriculture
consists mainly of coffee, sugarcane, and
cotton. Industry consists of textiles,
motorcycles, cars, machinery, agricultural
equipment, food and beverages, chemicals and
petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, paper and
telecommunications, computers and electronics.
The Campinas Metropolitan Region is home to
many national and international high-tech
industries, including IBM, Dell, Motorola,
Compaq, Samsung, Alcatel, Bosch, 3M, and Texas
Instruments. The automotive industry is also
heavily represented General Motors,
Mercedes-Benz, Honda, Toyota and many others are
present. Campinas also has a sizable
pharmaceutical industry sector, with companies
like Medley Farma, EMS Farma, Altana, and Merck
Sharp and Dohme. In addition the region is home
to many research centers and universities.
According to the Times Higher Education 2007
World University Rankings, the University of
Campinas (Unicamp) is the 177th best university
in the world, and the 2nd best in Latin
America. Campinas also boasts the largest number
of high-tech industrial parks. Examples of
Campinas-bred technologies are fiber optics,
lasers for telecommunications and medical
applications, integrated circuits design and
fabrication, satellite environmental monitoring
of natural resources, software for agriculture,
digital telephone switches, deep-water oil
exploration platforms and technologies,
biomedical equipment, medical software, genetic
engineering and recombinant DNA technologies for
food production and pharmaceutics, and food
engineering. Because of this, Campinas has been
called the Brazilian Silicon Valley.
Socio-Economic Conditions
Despite Campinas' position of wealth and social
and economic opportunity compared to the rest of
the country, the average per capita income of
Campinas families is little more than US 17,700
per year. Campinas is emblematic of the wealth
distribution inequality that is so common in the
country Brazil is the 9th largest economy in
the world, but ranks only 32nd in wealth
generation per capita, and 117th in average
inequality. Campinas has an inequality measure
that is roughly the same as that of Brazil as a
whole. This level of inequality is similar to
that of Zimbabwe and Paraguay. Such a level
means that the top 10 make almost 70 times more
than the poorest 10 of people.This level of
poverty contrasts with the high Human Development
Index of Campinas, The explanation for this
apparent contradiction is that side by side, even
in the same city section, one can find walled
condominiums with a yearly average per capita
income of US 60,000 to US 100,000 and spreading
"favelas" (slum cities) with incomes of less than
US800 per year. Until the late 1970s, Campinas
was proud to have no favelas, but the increasing
industrialization and wealth attracted hordes of
destitute agrarian workers and urban dwellers
with few job qualifications from all parts of the
country. Land invasions were frequent and the
municipal powers were unable or unwilling to
suppress them, allowing illegal occupation of
land in key sectors of the city.
School in Campinas
Education in Brazil is regulated by the Federal
Government, through the Ministry of Education,
which defines the guiding principles for the
organization of education programs. Local
governments are responsible for establishing
state and education programs following the
guidelines and using the funding supplied by the
federal government. Education is divided into
three levels, with several grades in each level.
Fundamental education is free for everyone
(including adults), and mandatory for children
between the ages of 6-14. Middle education is
also free, but not mandatory. Higher education
(including graduate degrees) is free at public
universities. Pre-school education is entirely
optional, and exists to aid in the development of
children under 6. It aims to assist in all areas
of child development, including motor skills,
cognitive skills, and social skills while
providing fertile ground for the later
acquisition of knowledge and learning. There are
day nurseries for children under 2, kindergartens
for 2-3 year olds, and preschools for children 4
and up. Public pre-schools are provided by city
Portuguese is the official language of Brazil,
and is spoken by more than 99 of the population.
Minority languages include indigenous languages,
and languages of more recent European and Asian
immigrants. The population speaks or signs
approximately 210 languages, of which 180 are
indigenous. Language is one of the strongest
elements of Brazil's national unity. The only
non-Portuguese speakers are members of Amerindian
groups, and pockets of immigrants who maintain
their heritage languages. Within Brazil, there is
no major dialect variation of the Portuguese, but
only moderate regional variation in accent,
vocabulary, and use of personal nouns, pronouns,
and verb conjugations. Variations are diminishing
as a result of mass media, especially national
television networks that are viewed by the
majority of Brazilians.

Brazilian Cuisine
Brazilian cooking, while it has many similarities
with that of its South American neighbors, is
distinct. Stretching from the Amazon in the
north, through the fertile plantations of the
central coast and on to the southern pampas, the
food of Brazil spans a unique mix of cultures and
cuisines. The original population contributed
popular ingredients like cassava and guarana.
African slaves influenced the cuisine of the
coastal states, especially Bahia. And around the
country, a Portuguese heritage is reflected in a
variety of dishes. Root vegetables such as
cassava, yams, and peanuts,and fruit like acai,
mango, papaya, guava, orange, passionfruit,
pineapple, and plum are among the local
ingredients used in cooking. Brazilian pine nuts
grow in a tree that is abundant in the southern
part of Brazil, and are a popular national snack,
as well as a lucrative export. Rice and beans are
an extremely common dish, as are fish, beef and

Carnival, Carnaval, is a great festival held
forty-six days before Easter. Carnival has roots
in the pagan festival of Saturnalia, which,
adapted to Christianity, became a farewell to bad
things in a season of religious discipline to
practice repentance. Rhythm, participation, and
costumes vary from one region of Brazil to
another. In the southeastern cities, huge
organized parades are led by samba schools. Those
official parades are meant to be watched by the
public, while minor parades allowing public
participation can be found in other cities.
Carnival is also influenced by
African-Brazilian culture. It's a six-day party
where crowds dance and sing through the city
streets. Carnival is the most famous holiday in
