How far did I travel this week?:

The furthest I traveled this week was to Tiradentes. I had to take three different buses in order to arrive at the city.

How far have I traveled on this journey so far?:

The furthest that I have traveled on this journey was to São Paulo. São Paulo and Vitória are the only places I have visited outside of the state of Minas Gerais. Brazil is a pretty large country, so it takes a flight or a long bus ride to journey outside of any given state.

How did I get around this week?:

I got around by taking buses and caronas (ride-sharing cars).

What was the most interesting place I visited this week?:

The coolest thing I saw this week was an incredible Mexican restaurant in Tiradentes. They had many photos of the Mexican painter Frida Kahlo all over the restaurant. She is my favorite artist!
