I’ve traveled to Goiás 3 times, two of those times I was really young and I went to Caldas Novas, a region with a lot of water parks. And the third and last time I went with my brother Rodrigo, author and owner of the blog O Mundo em Lanches. Get to know some curiosities about Goiás bellow:
He invited me in 2017 to go to Barra do Garças, a municipality in Mato Grosso, I accepted the invitation instantanly.

A Nice Surprise
We ate at a cornmeal mush restaurant, and for the first time I ate a salty cornmeal mush, it was a surprise. I had never heard of salty cornmeal mush before, but I loved it. It was something new and very good.
I remember ordering a dried meat cornmeal mush and being amazed by the taste.
Curiosities about Goiás
I remember noticing that the city of Goiânia didn’t have speed bumps, but several roundabouts scattered through the city’s streets. Fun fact: there they are not called roundabouts, but Queijinhos (free traduction – little cheese). This was a great curiosity about Goiás.
Continuation of the trip – Curiosities about Goiás
The next day I continued my trip to Barra do Garças, and I was enchanted by the road, very well preserved with a breathtaking view.
At the end of my trip, my brother Rodrigo and I returned to Goiás to catch our flight, but before the flight, we spent the day in Goiânia.
We visited some very beautiful and well preserved parks, there were wild animals living there, such as some species of monkeys, rodents, birds and so on.
