If you’re visiting Belo Horizonte for the first time you must visit the city’s Mercado Central.
Aside from being able to buy everything you could possibly ever want from there (from bodybuilding shakes to pigeons to bottles made from bull’s feet), it has loads of cool bars serving cold beers and the pork and beans mix Feijoada and the bacon, egg and pork delight Feijão Tropeiro.
You’ll see green eggs and orange birds.
If you fancy taking a peacock home, now’s your chance!
You can buy Brazil’s version of Johnnie Walker, João Andante (literally, “John Walker”), Cachaça (Sugar-cane alcohol used to make Caipirinhas) from Minas Gerais.
You can buy the colourful fruit that cashew nuts come from.
You can see cute puppies biting ears.
And so many pastel-coloured Brazilian birds.
