[BELO HORIZONTE] Brazil

Belo Horizonte is the 3rd largest city of Brazil with a population of 5,000,000 in its metro area and over 2,400,000 by itself. Despite its size, BH (as it's called by the locals), was considered as the best city in South America with high quality of life ratings by the United Nations' Population Crisis Commitee in 1991.

I started from Centro (city centre), besides these I'll post some other pics another day. Centro has a diverse collection of buildings from the late XIX century short ones to the 90's skyscrapers as you will notice.

Well, except for Kisser, talking about the original crew, they all come from BH.

all right, not only Sepultura, but also many other extreme metal bands had a huge impact on the outside, for example, Sarcófago, Chakal, Overdose, among many other bands here in Belo Horizonte, nice to know that you remembered the scene of the metal of Belo Horizonte, also like some important bands of the Polish scene, like Behemoth, Vader, Besatt among others. big hug Pawelr.

Really?

That explains Brazil and United States flags mixed on your avatar. Did you know that Belo Horizonte and Fort Lauderdale are sister cities? Please let me know when you're coming next time. It will be a pleasure to have an international SSC meeting or something like that.

Cheers!

Still in Centro, this time I decided to explore the biggest street market in town, Feira Hippie. The name is because people say it started with hippies selling their handcraft in the 70's.
