Former scholar-in-residence pens endearing piece about Green Bay

UW-Green Bay Spanish Scholar in Residence in 2011, Peruvian writer Jorge Eduardo Benavides, recently published an endearing piece about Green Bay and surrounding areas in the travel section of the most widely read Spanish newspaper, El País. In the article, Benavides encourages Spaniards to visit this region by describing not only the natural beauty of the area, but also by praising the local gastronomy that so positively impressed him while in Wisconsin — from the incredible variety of cheeses to the “farm to table” local restaurants. Of course, a notable mention in the article is Lambeau field (a required visit to any international visitor) and the famous “cheeseheads.” UW-Green Bay is also referenced in the piece.
