Next Day
It seems everywhere we go in Brazil we run into another festival. Ouro Preto celebrated its 350 birthday today with rock music and beer. Every region carries its own tune and this place likes hard rock music rather than samba.
Ouro Preto claims to be Brazil's most picturesque town.
We met another American, Nathan, who could speak Portugese and acted as our interpreter, although all that's needed to get by in Brazil is a smile.
Ouro Preto lights up.
