Ouro Preto

After we had lunch in Ariadnes house we (Tobias and I) started to walk through Ouro Preto.
Ouro Preto is really beautiful and we also enjoyed the sun. It was ca. 27 Degree and I really needed this temperature, because we hadn`t a summer this year in Germany. Only rain and 16 degree.

Some interesting infos about Ouro Preto:

- in the 18. century was Ouro Preto with 100 000 people the biggest city in Brasil
- 1980 UNESCO "Weltkulturerbe"
- People living in OP today: 66 000
- it is circa 100 km far from Belo Horizonte (two hours by bus)

A very nice day with Friends 28.08.05

I was really happy that these trainees and friends visited me in OP.
But how could I met them?
I wrote a mail to the yahoo group of Belo Horizonte and asked if there are some trainees in OP, but there were no reply. Only Melih wrote that he will visit OP with some friends.

I wanted to meet them for sure and so we made a appointment in OP. But I didn`t really know where the bus station is and so I waited at the wrong place. Yeah thats me ... I am never organized ... sorry Melih for that ;)

We spend a really nice day with shopping, sightseeing ...



and eating ;)





and when we had dinner, we saw a woman in her traditional clothes ... really nice



At this day Melih told me that he will make a long trip through the whole northeast of Brasil. It should start at the 30 of August. So I had only two days for organizing.

No Problem for me. I just asked Vitor ...



... if I could join the trip. He told me that it isn`t a problem and that I could join it. It should take two weeks.

I packed my things the night before the big day...
only one trouser, one shirt, one pullover, one bikini, the things like kosmetik and underwear and one pair of shoes :) .... I wanted to buy a lot ;)

But then I made a big mistake ... in the night I dreamt that something will happen during the trip and that I shouldn`t take both money cards and so I only took my VISA Card, but I forgot that I can`t take money with it :~

But Melih will find a solution for that ;)

So I went on the 30.08 in the morning to Belo Horizonte and met Melih there. We went to a restaurant and met Thomas.
After eating went Melih home to pack all his things and Thomas and I we went to a crazy Market in the city.

We spend a lot of time there, but it was really nice. We talked a lot and it is a pity that i couldn`t spend more time with him here in Brasil.

At 6 pm we met at McDonald (main meeting point) with Melih again. This is at the Praša Savassi in BH. Melih host brother drove us to a bus point for busses to the airport.
and so a big long travel started :) :)
