Last weekend we went to two beautiful places around the area of Belo Horizonte.
On Saturday we had a very long and bumpy bus ride to Serra do Cipó, which is a park located in the north of the city. We did not hike a lot but instead enjoyed the wonderful waterfall and the sun and the nature… Just a great place to be, hang out and have some “me-time”.
On the way back we stopped at a supermarket for some drinks… and came out with a total of 24 pairs of Havaianas, which makes 2.4 on average. Not that bad.
Sunday we went to Inhotim (also a long and bumpy ride), which is a museum and contemporary art museum. Outdoor. So all art is distributed within the park (which is huge!). And while I am not really into art our private guide was able to show us some amazing sculptures, I liked the one from Lygia Pape most. But sorry, no pictures allowed.
Interestingly Bernardo Paz (the founder of Inhotim) says “I don’t consider myself passionate for art. But gardens, that’s what I like.” (the whole article is very interesting to read!). As I agree with him I opted out from the tour pretty fast (my time-limit for art is around one hour) and started enjoying the beautiful garden… It was great to have some me-time, doing nothing except watching the squirrel eating nuts in the tree above, and enjoying the sun….
