339: Red carpet on stairs
The bus journey from Belo Horizonte to Diamantina takes about five hours, over a distance of almost three hundred kilometers. The ride takes you through arid, mountainous regions, called the ‘sertão’. On the way, the bus driver stopped at a number of places along the highway; the most important stopover was in the town of Curvelo, about halfway the ride. There the driver had to drive a tourist tour in order to reach the intercity bus station. The same route was taken again in the direction of the highway. Not far from Curvelo, along the highway, I noticed this red carpet. This runner covered the stairs to a higher church building. The churchgoers are here still regarded as very important people!
