369: Sunset reflection
Belo Horizonte has two main seasons: a warm and wet summer, and a cool and dry winter. The wet season starts in October and lasts until April. During the dry season, you can leave your umbrella at home, but in the wet season it is absolutely necessary to carry a good umbrella, and it is also recommended to carry spare clothes with you, in case of a serious downpour. During such a downpour, some streets and sidewalks can be transformed into little rivers, with water running very fast. When you are caught in such a stream, you’ll surely get wet feet. Your umbrella won’t give protection to your pants, but can save your shirt and your bag. After such a downpour, when the sun has returned, the shallow pools in the streets and on the pavements provide much inspiration for beautiful pictures of reflections in water. And when you walk there during sunset, you’ll witness colorful water mirrors, as if the sky and the water are on fire.
