Buenos Aires (City) Visit: -


Minas Gerais Visit: 2009-2
2009-02-19 - Juiz de Fora is located in the mountains and it's near Rio de Janeiro (a pleasant two hour drive). When I was visiting my cousin 14 years ago, fell in love with the city, saw a job offer, applied for it, and here I am. There are around 500,000 inhabitants and very good universities here. The night life is pretty cool and people are very friendly.The state of Minas Gerais, where Juiz de Fora is located, is famous for its hospitality and for having small cities, where people live a simple and calm life; it seems that "hurry" and "rush" do not exist in these cities dictionaries. My city, in spite of its 500,000 inhabitants is a mix of these two types. It offers almost everything a big metropolis does, but it's a great place to live a calm life. If you ever come to Minas Gerais, you have to visit the historical cities: OURO PRETO, TIRADENTES - to name a few. There, you'll be able to see scores of historical buildings and churches and get to know the feeling of what Minas Gerais is about.
