Once in a while a healthy brain needs some change – art at INHOTIM

After Tsimane I planned some cultural distraction. Flying via VVI - GRU towards CNF aka Belo Horizonte I spend two days south of Belo Horizonte to visit INHOTIM. INHOTIM is a marvelous land/ art/ museum/ park. The day there was impressive - I loved it. Exploring the various galleries, buildings,sections, pieces, artists! This museum should be explored thoroughly and a whole day is invested very wisely. Two relaxed days might be a good choice.

Not really close to INHOTIM but very nice is the Pousada Estalagem do Mirante. The three nights there were a good choice, overlooking the landscape, cool and windy at night. But do not expect overwhelming food at the pousada. Nevertheless a perfect and peaceful place to spend some days. Thank you for the good company and guiding!

Wednesday very early, the flight towards Manaus via Brasilia was about to leave from Belo Horizonte. Breno  “my partner in crime” and I were ready to start the upcoming week at RIO MARIE - The river of the Giants. Marie is the river of truly gigantic Giant Peacock Bass in the middle of the Brazilian Amazon close to the Colombian border. Probably one of the spots on earth with the largest distance to any man made street. But that is the next chapter of the ULTIMATE JUNGLE BLAST.

Enjoy some pictures of INHOTIM and the Pousada (the last pictures far down - they are worth it!).
