Animating gap year travel in South America

Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo may be the ideal destinations for travelers with a fascination for Japanese animation.

The 17th International Animation Festival, Anima Mundi 2009, will run from 10th July 2009 until 19th July 2009 in Rio de Janeiro and will feature a host of workshops, lectures, screenings and special guests.

Travelers who are unable to make it to Rio can book hostels in Sao Paulo in advance to ensure they do not miss out on the next installment of the anime extravaganza.

Sao Paulo will host the celebration of anime from 22nd July 2009 until 26th July 2009.

Animated grafitti and open studio sessions are just some of the highlights at both events, with a special lecture on the fundamentals and future of animation taking place in Rio de Janeiro with anime experts.

Travelers who are visiting Sao Paulo for the festival may wish to extend their stay and sample the city's culturally diverse restaurants and explore the wealth of museums and art galleries.
