December 19, 2012

ST. MARYS — For 16-year-old Luis Jordão, an exchange student at St. Marys Memorial High School, small-town America is exciting and different.

Jordão is from Racife, the largest city in Brazilian state Perambuco. The population there, approximately 1.5 million people, is over 180 times the size of St. Marys.

In August, Jordão packed up his stuff and left the coastal town with its warm beaches and oceanside restaurants to move to the United States.
