So what to tell about the city I’m going to live for about one year? When I tell Brazilians that I go to Varginha, they always say that aliens live there. There’s a story that in 1996 a UFO landed over there and because of this they’ve built the “Nave especial de Varginha”. This is a water tower in the form of a UFO.
Another fact is that Varginha is the 7th best city to live in Brazil. This was one of the things I read first and because of this I’m really happy about my host city.
My host city is also arranged in a great position, about 3½ hours away from the three of the biggest cities in Brazil: São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte.
