334: Pile of beer bottles
Sabará is a historic town about 25 km from Belo Horizonte. It is easy to reach by bus, and it is not difficult to imagine that the town receives a lot of visitors from Belo Horizonte, especially during the weekend. Most visitors like to walk in the hilly historic core, where there are a number of beautiful churches, with characteristic features of the baroque and rococo style. Others will visit local restaurants, cafes and ice-cream parlors for their refreshments. But Sabará is not just for tourists. When I was invited on a Saturday to go to a country-house in Sabará, I haven’t seen anything of the historic city center. The cottage was high on a hill, and there was a swimming pool where the guests were cooling down on this hot summer day. Barbecue and especially bottles of beer completed the entertainment on this day, just watch the large number of 600 ml bottles of beer in a forgotten corner.
