Ouro Preto

Last Thursday, Carla and Arnaldo took us on an outing to Ouro Preto, an old colonial town which was at one point the capital of Brazil. (If I heard that right. I think it was.) Lovely place, good company, delicious food. Enjoy some pictures!

I think they like each other!
Ouro Preto is famous for things carved out of soapstone, including cooking pots and delicious things which are cooked in them. I picked up a much smaller one of these pots at a market. :) I love buffet restaurants in Brazil...
