Belo Horizonte Cathedral

 

Taken from my hotel room window!  From 1979 - Belo Horizonte is steel town Brazil - the hills around the city are so full of iron ore that planes can't fly in on instruments  - they just go crazy.

this is a nice angle on this appealing cathedral and i am impressed that you have these shots from four decades ago, Tom.
Tom Wilson: Oh, I have hundreds of slides and prints from 50 years ago onwards until digital smile
Jolie vue aérienne.
Tom Wilson: Merci, Martine.

A grand church indeed Tom. The thing about the iron ore & planes is quite disturbing..
Tom Wilson: It is indeed - to both! Any foggy day results in cancelled flights!
The fact about the iron ore is interesting but the fact that they build a hotel to tower over a cathedral is even more so!
Tom Wilson: I've been trying to locate the hotel on Google Maps, but it looks as though it has disappeared.

That is extraordinary about the iron affecting a planes instruments, that must be some field given off. I like the picture. What a great hotel room to have this view.
Tom Wilson: I can't locate the hotel on Google Maps so I guess it must have been pulled down and something else erected - or perhaps converted to apartments.
Fine looking building.
Tom Wilson: Many such in South America, Brian.
That is a most interesting fact, Tom.
Tom Wilson: Fortunately, it was fine when I flew in and out!
