Travel Blogs from Belo Horizonte
It's been a minute so to those of you hanging out for the latest edition I apologise unreservedly. Sorry Mum.
Last I checked in was first night in Belo Horizonte. Much has happened since then. Our first day after the game in BH me and Julz spent scoping out the town, stumbling upon the excessive markets they have downtown on weekends and getting propositioned by some not so nice looking women, who almost certainly had penises.
