I told my boyfriend: I'm thinking of starting a new blog but I have no idea what to call it.
How do you say Twin Peaks in Portuguese? he asked. When he'd visited Brasil in 2000, he had joked how my family's town reminded him of a Brasilian Twin Peaks. Perhaps because of its eccentric characters. Perhaps because of its sleepy, remote nature. Perhaps because of local stories involving werewolves, ghosts and other strange going ons in these mountains that surround the town - including, more recently, UFOs.
So that's the reason for Picos Gêmeos. I'm hoping this collection of non-fiction will be a place to share tales of this small town in the state of Minas Gerais, life in our family's guesthouse and thoughts on Brasil and its culture as well as my life in London, UK. But I reserve the right to keep these writings as random as possible, with other bits and pieces added occasionally... a little bit like real life.
