At the invitation of Brazil's first lady, Michelle Bolsonaro, Peng Liyuan, wife of Chinese President Xi Jinping, attended the spouses' activities of the BRICS leaders on Wednesday.

Accompanied by Bolsonaro, Peng and Tshepo Motsepe, the first lady of South Africa, visited the Palace of the Dawn, also known as "Palácio da Alvorada," which is the official residence of the Brazilian president.

The first ladies took a group photo, watched a performance presented by the Brazilian Youth Wind Ensemble, and had a conversation with the performers.
