298: Floating flowers
Unlike winter in Western Europe, trees and flowers bloom in Belo Horizonte in winter. A tropical winter in this city is almost the same as summer in Western Europe: during the day the temperature may fluctuate between 20 and 25, with some peaks towards tropical values. In the night the temperature varies between 12 and 18 degrees. Rarely it gets colder than ten degrees in the night. However, at higher locations, you should be prepared for lower temperatures. It rarely rains in Belo Horizonte during the winter months. The skies are usually deep blue. Many elm trees bloom in winter: you will see purple, yellow, white and pink elm trees blossoming exuberantly. The flowers on the picture are not of an elm tree, but of a Thunbergia shrub.
