309: Dark clouds over Economics Faculty
From 2005 to 2014, I was regularly found in the campus of the Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG) in Belo Horizonte. I had my space at the Faculty of Biological Sciences, and I was a frequent visitor of the Faculty of Information Sciences. Since I was invited to join a student travel to Salvador in 2006, I have made many friends there, and have joined various gatherings and parties. I have played numerous matches of Braziliaan pool billiard (sinuca) in the early evening hours. The UFMG campus is really large, it more resembles a little town. Large faculty complexes are spread across the campus, only few faculties – among them the Faculty of Medicine – remain outside this Pampulha Campus. One of the newer faculties is the Economics Faculty as seen on the photo. At that hour, really dark clouds hovered above bright colored complex.
