Mariana



We ended our first day to Ouro Preto traveling an hour by train to the city of Mariana.

It was a small city with a cute train station and some more pretty churches. 

Mariana was founded in 1696 and still has some mining on the outskirts of the city.


The sun and sky's colors were brilliant tonight.

Yes, I thought these were photos from Europe. It's great to "see" different parts of the world through others.
