I took a slight detour to visit magical Inhotim, a 5,000-acre contemporary art museum and botanical garden located about an hour and a half bus ride from Belo Horizonte. Bernardo de Mello Paz opened this park/disney land for the contemporary art scholar in 2006 on land that was originally his own farm (a different kind of cultivation, I suppose!). There are said to be 500+ artworks at Inhotim, and rare species of plants from every continent. Here are photos of a few of my favorites.
