South America part 3

As I write this post, I'm on my way back to Brazil.  Door to door, it will take about 22 hours including a 5 hour layover in Miami.  It's a long day/night to say the least.

Continuing on from my last post of South America, I walked into town after visiting the Hard Rock Cafe in Belo Horizonte.

cool looking house on the walk

 I came across a small Pizzeria with outdoor seating and decided to stop.  It was a nice little restaurant and no one knew English so I pointed to something on the menu.



While waiting for the pizza I noticed the delivery vehicle. This is a dangerous job with the way people drive here.


Once my pizza arrived I was surprised to see corn on it, but it was delicious!



Walking back to the hotel I came across a little grocery store.


They had a small ensemble playing music that was nice.  They also had beer tasting. The beautiful young women handing out the beer didn't know any English and I don't know Portuguese, but I managed to get a couple samples.



 I ended up just buying some water.  I didn't have any small bills when I checked out and the cashier didn't have much change.  I'm pretty sure she called me stupid in Portuguese :-)

Corn on pizza? Sounds good to me! I love corn...I love pizza. duh.

Your last sentence cracked me up. Sorry about that one.

That pizza looks weird. Glad it was good, though. What a whole different (and very cool) experience to travel to a place where you don't speak the language.
