Otto and moi
I bought him in Salvador da Bahia..yes you could buy animals those days, and I had no clams in doing so. if I had not, he might have died cruely in a cage, took him, after a Bustrip of around 30hours, to N.L. where he lived with us for 2 years, then Otto made the big trip by ship across the Atlantic and settled down with us in Munich. He died in 1982, 12years of age. in the wild, the normal life expectancy of these Mormoset is between 7-10years.
the Capital of Minas Gerais...beautiful Horizon is an appropriate translation for this lovely City.
has one of the great Stadiums in Brasil......o Mineirao
Belo Horizonte was projected to become the Capital of Minas Gerais, surrounded by beautiful Landscape, the neoclassical Architecture enhances the modern Architecture of Belo Horizonte an interesting mix and speaking for myself, a beautiful City.
Belo, ( beautiful ) as the City is affectioned called, is considered to have the best Quality of Life in Brasil. the climate mild in winter, summers not too hot, at times can be a bit rainy...reminds of Auckland/NZ
the first planned City under Juscelino Kubitschek then Belo's Mayor, who became later President of Brasil and went on to build the new Capital of Brasil......Brasilia.
NOVA LIMA....not far from Belo Horizonte
situated on an altitude of around 750m, in the beautiful surroundings of the Serra do Curral.
in the early days of colonialsation the place was called.. Ribeiro do Campo and
1923 renamed...Nova Lima.
the area has a pleasant climate, not to hot and winters are very mild, it rain's quite often for short periods, but the greenery around the Town and its wonderful Flora and Fauna makes up for it.
just 20km from Belo Horizonte, Nova Lima has a lot to offer.
