      Erkundungstour durch Belo

      September 4, 2019 in Brazil ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

      Nach einem seehr sehr ausgedehnten "Früh"stück und zahlreichen Ablenkungen kamen wir gegen 14 Uhr 😅 los, um die Gegend um Ivans Elternhaus herum zu erkunden. - Haben uns schon voll und ganz auf den brasilianischen Chillermodus eingestellt 😎 -

      Was mich überraschte: Wirklich große Unterschiede zu den Städten in Spanien / Portugal / Türkei gibt es gar nicht! Das macht es gerade nicht leichter, den Gedanken abzulegen, ich wäre nur mal kurz für 2 Wochen im Malle-Urlaub xD

      Wir streiften also durch die Straßen, fanden den ein oder anderen Shop, viel cooles Graffiti und einen kleinen Wochenmarkt mit vielen spannenden Spezialitäten wie Guarapa (Zuckerrohrsaft), Käsechips oder Guavenmarmelade.

      Abends fuhr uns Ivans Papa dann noch an den Rand von Belo Horizonte auf einen Aussichtspunkt (Mirante Do Mangabeiras), auf dem wir den wunderschönen Sonnenuntergang über der riesigen Skyline bestaunen konnten. Mein Highlight des Tages waren dann allerdings doch die frei herumlaufenden Nasenbären, die im Müll wühlten und sich nicht von uns stören ließen 😍🤭

      Zum Abschluss gingen wir dann noch alle gemeinsam Pizza essen 😋

      Fact des Tages: Der Mond liegt in Brasilien auf dem Rücken 😯 Das war mir noch gar nicht bewusst, hab mich voll erschrocken XD Und machte mir dann doch langsam klar, an einem ganz anderen Punkt auf der Welt zu sein als üblich 🙈🙈

      BH Culture

      April 3, 2018 in Brazil ⋅ 🌙 22 °C

      I'm now in Belo Horizonte, the capital of Minas Gerais. I already got here yesterday afternoon and took advantage of the fact that there are two climbing gyms in close walking distance. After showering I didn't even have time to sit done, but went with a little group to a bar that features rock music and billard.
      Today I got out to learn something about the mineiro culture. I walked a lot in between two museums and the central market. Although of course not everything in BH is pretty, I am still surprised that so few people visit it, because there is a lot to do here (much more than for example in São Paulo).

      BH's Culinary Highlights

      April 5, 2018 in Brazil ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

      Today I met with João, a friend that I know from my exchange year and that I'd also traveled two days with oh Colombia. We went to a cultural center and to a viewpoint - unfortunately at that moment it started to rain, but we still got a nice picture of BH from above. Most importantly, however, he showed me two awesome places to eat. The probably most typical mineiro dish we had was stuffed pão de queijo. Just DELI!Read more

      Forró

      April 4, 2018 in Brazil ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

      What Salsa is to Colombians, that is Forró to the Brazilians. Tonight I got to know and try this beautiful dance at the bar A Autentica. I took my time with the first dance, as most people at the party were really good dancers and I knew I would be sticking out. In addition, many couples (and by couple I refer to mostly one-song dancing couples) danced much closer than I would feel comfortable with a stranger.
      Already watching the others was fascinating. This dance has an incredible beauty (and in some cases also a lot of emotion) to it. Very slowly I also started accepting dance offers, however telling them that I had no Forró experience and preferred to keep at least some of my personal space. Since (almost) everyone accepted that and it also became clear that they really wouldn't try anything but dancing, I could relax and just enjoy the dance. It is definitely a lot of fun and a big part of Brazilian culture :)
