    Up the cobblestone hills

    March 30, 2018 in Brazil ⋅ 🌙 19 °C

    It took me one bus, two planes and a shuttle to get to the colonial town of Ouro Preto, but ur was worth every second. It is just exactly the kind of town I like: small with cute houses, hills, cobblestoned alleys, a lot of culture and great restaurants.
    Together with Nicolás, an Argentinean from the hostel, I added various kilometers and god knows how many churches to the count. My hiking shoes do serve me well here.Read more

    Semana Santa celebrations

    March 31, 2018 in Brazil ⋅ 🌙 17 °C

    If you have looked at the map of this trip, you might be wondering why I took the long trip to Ouro Preto, which definitely is not just "on the way". The answer is: because of the holy week. Leaving alone that I didn't want to spend Easter on an overcrowded beach full of drunk and a little intrusive Brazilian machos (just my very prejudicial expectation), I had also read that Ouro Preto was the best place in Brazil this time of the year.
    The official Semana Santa agenda, though not even close to including everything that is going on, includes numbers of processions, services, liturgies, orchestrations and other Easter traditions.

    Museum day

    April 1, 2018 in Brazil ⋅ 🌙 19 °C

    Well, the title pretty much covers it. It's not allowed to take pictures in the museums, so I'll just leave some more nice views here.
