A few weeks ago, Hub had a business meeting in Teresópolis and invited me to come along. I've never travelled outside of Rio so I was keen to see what a small town high in the mountains would be like. Welcome to Teresópolis.

Três Picos, where you can do some serious hiking. Our friend Elisa invited us to
The town itself is not much to look at, but there have some charming neighborhoods and pousadas worth checking out. It reminded me of little towns in El Salvador set against a Bavarian backdrop. It was kind of strange, beautiful and not beautiful.

That afternoon we were taken to the local golf club, where we were wined and dined. Later we watched the sun set on the mountains over a bottle of red. It was fantastic.
I look forward to visiting Teresópolis again and exploring it more.
