I arrived at my friends place by bus from Rio de Janeiro just in time for this!
This is the view from my friends apartment building in Belo Horizonte. I have never captured a sunset like this- especially with this level of clarity and the sharpness of the city-scape. I am pleased to say the least. I did not have a tripod but propped the camera up on the edge of the balcony.
After a few Brazilian craft beers (which i’ll talk about in another post), we headed out for more of them and returned to this site at around 12:30am. I think because of some wind, the moon is slightly blurred, unfortunately. If you professionals have any tips, let me know! Thanks.

Was off to my friends-girlfriend’s-families house in Freguesia, RJ yesterday for a small birthday BBQ. We got to there and within 20 minutes, a whole family of monkeys came down to check it out. I heard they could bite but I felt as long as I gave them the fruit they’d be satisfied, and they were. I want to get 4 or 5 of them on my shoulders next time!
The closest thing to water I've ever tried. It even sounds watery. I have about 20 local craft beers i've been wanting to try/review. I've tried a couple from Sao Paulo. One that stood out was the IPA from Colorado Brewing. It seems many of these craft beers are either impossible to find at bars or cost a bloody fortune at any smaller grocery store. I'm talking about $24-$30R + for a bottle of 300-500ml sized beers. About $12-$15 US. I've got to look harder. As a student and traveler I've really go to balance my craving for flavorful beer and the costs of participating in such a hobby. Of course Im also going to review all the mainstream beers like Anatartica, Skol, Brahma, and Bohemia as well. Currently I am browsing various blogs and looking into an ideal format for the reviews.
