So far, I have stayed in São Paulo. But I am very excited to visit Belo Horizonte, in the state of Minas Gerais, the week of the 24th. I promise to take a lot of pictures!

How did I get around this week?:

This week I used the metro (subway) and buses to get around the city. There is a bus stop in front of my house and I am only two blocks from a metro station so getting to other parts of the city is easy.

I visited a unique event space in my neighborhood called Cartell 011. The building has multiple lounges, bars, an indepedent clothing store, and a large gallery space. I love the creative ways people use buildings here.

My roommate's friends from Rio de Janeiro and Peru stayed with us over the weekend. It was great to chat with people from different places and learn about how their cities are different or similar to São Paulo.
