I had a nice Italian neighbor in the plane to São Paulo. He didn`t speak English, but he had some chewing gums for me. :)
I really could sleep well in the plane ... they had a good food ... OK I don`t know if it was good, because I ate the last food as breakfast.
And then I listened to music and slept until São Paulo.
But by the way I was also very worry because the flight was delayed in Madrid and I have known that I only have 2 hours for finding the right plane to Belo Horizonte.
I arrived in São Paulo at 7:00 and I was really busy with finding my bag and then to find the right hall and the right check in. And I had only 45 min time.
There was a long long long line in front of the check in when I arrived it.
And I was really worry and watching at my mobile phone for the time, when a nice voice asked me in English where I want to go. It was Julian from Belo Horizonte and he is traveling through the whole world, because of his work. I was really happy to hear that there is an other check in for near flights and that he will help me.
At the end he also invited me for a very very hot chocolate and then he introduced me to the first famous Brazilian drink ... Guarana ... very delicious ... the taste is a bit like Red Bull, but not so sweet.
I arrived well in Belo Horizonte and my Hostsister Ariadne (Teca) and her father Marcio were waiting for me. :) I was so surprised that they speak English fluently. But Marcio lived in the USA and studied there and Ariadne made a year in China. They showed me Belo Horizonte on the two hour way to Ouro Preto in Minas Gerais.
They also told me that there is another trainee from Germany. He should live at Ariadnes boyfriends house, but nobody was there because the university was on strike and so no students were in the republica. We passed at this house and picked Tobias from Dresden up.
And we ate our first very good Brazilian meal. Thanks Maria. Maria is a house maid and she is cooking very well and I have tested many different Brazilian restaurant until now. :)
In the daytime Tobias and I visited Ouro Preto and we enjoyed our first real day in Brasilien.
