Mining Country

At first glance, it almost looks like you could be in Wyoming.  Despite being over 5000 miles apart, there is an eerie similarity.  Until you look at the architecture, that is (and maybe also the green hills).    Let’s face it, the Portuguese brought a beautiful architectural heritage to their colonies that the American West just can’t live up to.

The weekend brought a holiday celebrating São Paulo´s (failed) constitutionalist revolution back in 1932, so of course it was time to get away.  3 days (and 30 hours on a bus) led to a great weekend involving giant hills, freezing showers, churches, cobblestone streets, and lots of cheese.
