    BH Culture

    April 3 in Brazil

    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).Read more

    BH's Culinary Highlights

    April 5 in Brazil

    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

  • Day194

    Nach einer ziemlichen Himmelfahrt von Bolivien über Iquique, Santiago de Chile und Rio de Janeiro, komme ich müde in Belo Horizonte an.
    Eigentlich wollte ich bei Freddy, meinem allerersten Capoeira-Lehrer unterkommen, da dieser aber eine frisch schwangere, eifersüchtige Freundin hat, fällt diese Option flach. Alles aber gar kein Problem, denn er organisiert mir eine andere Bleibe. Perfekt, denn Mandi, mein neuer Gastgeber organisiert Forró in Belo Horizonte, ich bin also in besten Händen und werde zu den schönsten Forró Events der Stadt chauffiert. :-) Es gibt an einem Abend eine "Roda de Forró", wo die Musiker am Tisch im Kreis sitzen und wir drumrum tanzen. Das ganze hoch oben mit Ausblick auf die Lichter der Stadt...
    Als Gast bin ich automatisch eingeladen sonntags mit der gesamten Familie im Haus der Mutter mittagzuessen. Mandi hat zwei ganz nette Söhne und mich fasziniert, wie viel "kuscheliger" Jungs in Brasilien sind. Die zwei haben gar kein Problem damit, sich von mir und allen anderen Tanten drücken und küssen zu lassen und sind selbst auch ganz "zutraulich". Wir fahren zusammen zum Aussichtspunkt der Stadt...

    Forró

    April 4 in Brazil

    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 :)
