Though I noticed many people don't like the government here. I loved seeing a part of where the country is governed. It's very beautiful structure inside and out.

Just saw it from the outside; if you arrive in Belo Horizonte from the Confins airport, you'll see Cidade Administrativa on the right side of the highway. It is a beautiful Niemeyer creation.
