I visited Pamplulha, the mirante of Mangabeiras, a little mountain village called Macacus and walked all over the city centre.
Then I went to Central Market, and it made me want to move to BH just so I could shop there every week.
It is a huge indoor market and there you can find everything you could imagine, and I do mean EVERYTHING.
I found there: licour, cosmetics, car oil and other products, pets, piggy banks, candles, fantasias (carnival costumes) and belly dancing costumes, herbal medicine, pots, pans and other kitchen utensils, musical instruments, artesania, disecated cow heads, hammocks, jewlery, toys, flowers, food staples and delicatessen, candy, tourist packages, electric appliances, the unavoidable havaianas and about a thousand other things I've forgotten about.
A true feast of the senses, colourful and very smelly, I adored everything with the exception of live beings on sale.
