Photographer's Note

A view from my city Belo Horizonte, a place I left 7 years ago...

"Belo Horizonte is the 3rd largest city in Brazil coming after Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. You'll find this city at about 2/3 of the way from Brasilia to Rio. It is the capital of Minas Gerais state. The name means Beautiful Horizon. The city of Belo Horizonte was completely built on a plan corresponding to that of Washington D.C., with a very long highway circling the whole city. It is considered to be one of the cities with the best quality of life in Latin America. Belo Horizonte was founded in 1897 and is Brazil's third largest city with a population of some 2.5 million inhabitants and over 5.1 million inhabitants in metropolitan area."(http://www.world66.com/southamerica/brazil/belohorizonte)
