FEBRUARY 2009: Cycling toddler
Belo Horizonte, capital of Minas Gerais, is built in a hilly landscape. Virtually every street or avenue in the metropolis has one or more slopes. Therefore, you need supportive footwear for daily walks. The south of the city is built on the slopes of Serra do Curral, a small mountain range with peaks up to 1700 meters. The road from downtown to Mangabeiras Park, six kilometers away, is one big slope. A large square is located just in front of the park: Praça do Papa, from which you may enjoy a magnificent view of the city center. The square is an ideal location for various forms of leisure and entertainment. You’ll find skaters, slack line acrobats, kite runners, and cyclists. My camera located this toddler who rode his rounds on his bike with training wheels.
