“I am an ambassador from Mendoza in Rio de Janeiro”

Everaldo Almeyda is a Brazilian who has tired of visiting Argentina: he already came to the country about 10 times. Mendoza is his favorite place, and that's how he sees us.

As we are

Mendoza is a very touristic city. And, as in the rest of the cities of this type,  tourists who stand out in quantity are Brazilians  . Change favors them. More or less, but it always suits them. And, in addition, we have very different customs and tastes for how close we are from geographical.  Wine and meat are products of excellence in our country , while in Brazil they are just a couple more of the gastronomic and tourist products of the heap.

Those, among others, are the attractions that have led  Everaldo Almeyda  to visit our country almost 10 times.  He was born in Rio de Janeiro, 72 years old and is a lawyer . He has been to Mendoza 6 times. Since 2012, he has done it almost every year. Even, our language is an interesting element for him, that's why he  spent more than a month exclusively studying Spanish . But he's also been in Buenos Aires and elsewhere.

Your impressions

“I was always very well treated by the Argentines. Both in  Bariloche  and Buenos Aires and mainly in Mendoza. It's a city that I like a lot.  I even feel, a little bit, a mendocino citizen .” The treatment he has received permanently during his visits to our country is impeccable, “for me they were always very kind and respectful,” he says.

He likes our country so much that sometimes he becomes a tour operator: “ I do a lot of propaganda for Mendoza and Argentina in Brazil . In fact, I've already sent a group of 15 Brazilian doctors to know the wineries and taste Mendoza wines.  I say that I am an ambassador from Mendoza to Rio de Janeiro .”

And, when choosing about our gastronomic offer, Everaldo is no sonso: “ My favorite food in Argentina is  chorizo steak. I really like Argentinian meat. That meat with Mendoza wines doesn't compare to anything. It's very, very, very good.”
