335: Basketball Court
It was on a hot summer Saturday in January, when I was invited for a birthday barbecue at an exclusive club in Belo Horizonte. It was a former student of mine, who would celebrate his birthday, in the presence of his family and close friends. His family was a long-time member of the club, and I received one of the few guest entrance passes. Such a club usually hosts a wide range of leisure facilities for the entire family. At least large swimming pools, which are very welcome on the hot summer days. You can find a great number of loungers around the pool, and there are at least some barbecue facilities too. What is a club party without a barbecue? Brazilians love barbecues, and will find any occasion to have another barbecue, accompanied by many bottles of beer and cachaça (a kind of cane sugar gin). Sportive members will enter the soccer pitch, the tennis, peteca, or basketball courts, as shown in the picture.
