My new home in Brazil: what do you think?

It┤s temporary, but it┤s still my home Lol. While I am redecorating my apartment, I am temporarily living in my sister┤s house in a residential neighbourhood of Belo Horizonte called Mangabeiras. I wished I could stay there forever...

IDK why I suspected you were upper class.

Do you live in the first white house?

Don't like the shape of the house. Looks too simple. Like single unit commieblock. Looks also like a very dangerous area with all the metal fences.

Very nice photos, Maria Theresa. Thx for sharing

Best thing about this neighbourhood is the abundance of greenery, and the surrounding hills make for a wonderful backdrop. Certainly looks like a nice place to live. There are a lot of security fences and gates on this street too though huh..

Thank┤s.

Yes, the scenery and the greenery, as well as the climate, are fantastic.

About the security fences and gates, they are necessary in open neighbourhoods in Belo Horizonte, such as the one in this thread. Houses with no walls or gates are found inside gated communities, not in public districts, for safety reasons.

You're welcome.

That's pretty much what I was thinking anyway, I mean it's the same all over, so people shouldn't be too surprised to see this I guess.
