    Fonte dos Amores - The Lovers' Fountain
    In order to get there, you've to enter a kind of rainforest. It was really cool somehow for I had never seen something like this before.
    This is also where the track up to the Christ Statue begins.

    I was told that actually there is much more water running down, but for it hadn't rained for quite a long time this is what it looked like; beautiful anyway, isn't it? :-)
    Next to the waterfalls is a building where souvenirs of Pocos and things like these were sold.
    Also there is a kart lane or something nearby.

    this picture was taken at a restaurant called 'alemao' which is located in Sao Paulo state (in the countryside), about 45 minutes by car from Pocos. Even though this restaurant is called 'German', the dishes they offer are Brazilian, very delicious though!

    Guarulhos airport Sao Paulo (if you're from Germany I recommend to come either by Lufthansa or Varig). From there we took the bus to a big 'bus center' in order to take the other one to Pocos. The drive took about four hours, including several stops. By car it takes about 2 hours I think, maybe even less.
    walk, hire a car or use public transportations

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Well, when I arrived there it was really hot, much hotter than I had expected (for it was winter there). I guess temperatures were about 30°C. It stayed like that for a couple of days but later it become colder. One day it was even that cold, only about 10°C I suppose, that I had to wear a coat outside. However it finally became a bit warmer again some days later. When it comes to clothing, I suggest to bring some summer clothes (no shorts, skirts,...etc. though), as well as some winter clothes: pullovers, a coat,...etc.

    Now some facts about the other seasons: In summer it's raining season in Brazil which means that it can rain for days without a stop. However temperatures are very high. In fall (spring in Europe) it finally stops raining and temperatures become a bit lower. I was told that this is the best time for travelling to Brazil.

    Fondest memory: visit the Christ statue and enjoy the beautiful view over the city. You can either hike up there (the hiking trail through a kind of rain forest starts at the Lover's Fountain, have a look at my must sees for the addy), use the cable car or go by car.
