Today we got up early, had breakfast at Isabel's house and were in Barão de Cocais for a workshop by 9am... a great bunch of teachers and we had a fun with them.
Tod gave a really nice talk, and we ended with a few activities.
The drive back was spectacular.
I caught the bus up to Pampulha again today, where Deborah came to pick me up for lunch. Her Mum was cooking today, which meant more home cooked food!
She made feijao tropeiro, with fruit and vegetables, rice and meatballs.
Deborah spent some time making a delicious brigadeiro like desert which she ...
... with anything else, they actually enjoy the food and the people they are with. This is something that is seriously wrong with Western Culture.
An hour after we finished eating, we decided to leave and get Acai. I'd like to thank Brazil for this addiction. Even here in Brazil it has become and expensive habit, how I am I supposed to maintain this when I get back to Australia, where the berry doesn't even grow?
We made our way to an acai place ...
... grounds and being in nature were enough for me. There were even exhibitions that I didn't even enter.
There was one cool area though. It was a room inside that had big shards of glass on the floor, that made a really nice musical sound when there were lots of people in there. The sound of the glass breaking under everyones feet reverberated through the room creating some type of creepy music. One piece of art that gets a thumbs up.
... but it was a very interactive ceremony, with lots of audience participation. People could chip in with the reading when they wanted to, and at one point we were all invited to contribute subjects for prayer, (We avoided eye contact at that point.) After mass, free tea and popcorn was served.
We were only at the sanctuary for a couple of nights, and could easily have stayed a lot longer. Next stop: Ouro Preto.
