In BRASILIA HASH HOUSE HARRIERS
After the great exodus of Hashers in the last few weeks, Sheep Shagger and Just Marcelo put their hands up to hare Hash N+238. And this should be a runners delight as Just Marcelo knows the area inside and out. So there should be a few surprises on trail. Start and end point will be the parking lot in front of the Praca dos Cristais in the military sector. Everybody is welcome, but a sense of humor is a must. On On

Walker’s trail will be about 5km and the runners one…….. who knows with Racist Calc-Oholic in charge. As usual, everybody is welcome, but a sense of humor a must. On On

In Coffee Shops
If you live in Lago Norte, or you want a bit of a drive, you must have heard of the fantastic bakery and coffeeshop Padóca. Located in CA 7 in Lago Norte, it opened its doors in July 2021 and was an instant hit with the locals. The brains behind the coffeeshop are Catia Lopes and Camila Marconi, who wanted to open a community coffee shop where locals can meet, remote work and have a healthy choice of food. And they are environmentally friendly, so you will not find any plastic utensils or packaging. All products are produced on the premises with fresh ingrediencies, and you can watch the bakers through a glass window working. The corner shop has a large veranda with tables, chairs, a sofa and even a swing. The products on offer are typical for a bakery, like different breads, croissants, cakes, etc. And for breakfast and lunch you can order all sorts of dishes from the menu that are very tasty. Try the guacamole toast with egg on top. And the coffee is sensational. And to top it all off, the prices are very reasonable. For example, if you order a guacamole toast with egg, a orange juice and a cappuccino it will set you back under R$40 Padóca is open 7 days a week and on Saturday and Sundays, as well as on public holidays, they offer a breakfast buffet.

If one has an imported car or a luxury vehicle in Brazil, getting spare parts or even service parts can be a real challenge. A lot of times, mechanical workshops replace service parts with low quality parts, or they do not have parts in stock for imported vehicles Thankfully here in Brasilia My Import can help. They specialize in sourcing and supplying service and spare parts, even importing them from overseas, for high-end and imported vehicles. My Import can get parts for high-end imported cars like BMW, Audi, Volvo, Jaguar, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche or even Bentley to name a few. The owner of My Import, Nick Ingrisano, is an American from Chicago, and has lived in Brasilia for 8 years. He has a background of mechanical engineering and ran a high-performance mechanical shop here in Brasilia for several years. He realized very soon that high quality service and spare parts are hard to come by here in Brazil, so he founded his own company to fill the demand. Since then, My Import has established a sizable stock of quality and original service parts, like filters, brake pads and shock absorbers for imported cars. They also established connections to a vast network of OEM parts suppliers in Brasil, so if they do not have a part in stock, they will be able to get it to Brasilia within a couple of days. And if the required parts cannot be sourced within Brazil, they can be imported from overseas, which can take between 20 and 40 days, depending on the country of origin. Summing things up, very few parts are out of reach. Besides supplying parts, My Import also offers a pre-purchase personalized inspection service to help identify existing and potential faults. And if one is looking for a specialist mechanical workshop for certain models, Nick is more than happy to recommend trusted and able ones. Please click on the picture below for more information.

Yes, we know it is Easter weekend and a lot of you are travelling or visiting family on that day, but others will stay behind and are looking forward to some friendly faces and some beers. Pencil Squeezer and Just Billy volunteered (?) to hare this one and it will be Just Billy’s first haring experience. Starting point will be the parking lot opposite the Bosque Park Experience, a medium size pop up food court in CLN 316, Asa Norte. So why not come early and grab a bite to eat before you hash and down the golden ales…….. And since it is Eastern Sunday, we might have some little surprises after the circle or on trail. As usual, the walking trail will be about 5km, and the runners can look forward to between 7-9km. As usual, everybody is welcome, but a sense of humor is a must.

Novice and professional photographers find servicing and repairing cameras in Brazil difficult, it is especially so in Brasilia. There is a place, however, where you can take care of every phase of camera repair and maintenance for both electronic and mechanical models: Itamarati Assistência Técnica. It is one of the few stores that specialize in servicing and repairing photographic equipment in the capital; the owner Pedro can also look after your monoculars and even telescopes. Despite Canon still selling photographic equipment here in Brazil, all the service facilities are in São Paulo. Nikon announced in 2017 that they will stop selling all their photographic equipment and closed its service facilities in Brazil in 2017. That meant that if your Nikon photographic equipment needed to be serviced or repaired, you had to wait until you return overseas or send it to the service center in the US. Not anymore now that you know about Itamarati Assistência Técnica right here in the Distrito Federal. With over 40 years’ experience in repairing everything optical, Pedro, a friendly and knowledgeable man, is by far the most qualified person in Brasilia to look after your expensive photographic equipment, cameras, flashes, scopes, binoculars and more... He also has a passion collecting and restoring old cameras, runs an exchange market, and he speaks some English. Located in Trecho 7, Feira do SIA do Distrito Federal in Guara, finding the store can be a bit tricky as it is hidden away behind Feira do Paraguai in SIA. Just look for the window displaying cameras, vintage equipment, and parts - a trip through the history of cameras that is a treat in itself.

The BH3 will supply the trash bags as well as disposable gloves, but we recommend that people bring some sturdy garden gloves as well for better protection. Please share this invite with as many groups and individuals as possible so we get a good turnout. BH3 – Cleaning Brasilia bit by bit.

In a world of consumerism and a throw-away society it is important that we try our best to support local producers and artisan crafts. One of the community initiatives is this shop. Commercial São Benedito, formerly known as Cobogó Mercado de Objetos, is a cooperative local producer shop located in SCRN 704/705 in Asa Norte. It has several different vendors on two levels, selling everything from secondhand clothes, art and craft articles, jewelry, pottery and plants. They also operate a great coffee shop with outside seating under a magnificent Brazilian fig tree (Ficus cyclophylla), which is an IUCN Red List Endangered species. For the kids, there is a small playground. This is a great little place to buy some locally produced products and have a nice coffee and cake, all while supporting small business owners.

You would be forgiven for not knowing about one of the most charming places in Brasilia— Espaço Aroeira, as you come into the Setor de Habitações Individuais Norte, SHIN, plant nurseries to your right, at the beginning of Lago Norte. In fact, I have been going to the plants stores nearly every two months for at least 5 years and did not know it was there. Espaço Aroeira is located at the back of all the nursery stores. I set foot in it for the first time recently, and wow. At the entry to this little oasis is by the outdoor seating from Café Auoreira. It is a beautiful little café that has a limited menu, but what they serve is excellent and very inexpensive. In their outdoor seating area, you are surrounded by beautiful plants and a little pond (with a warning sign that you might get an electrical shock if you enter the pond). About 30 meters from the entry, there is a charming little alley with several colorful shops selling everything from artisan bread, organic cosmetic products, fashions, arts, crafts, and house decorations. The owner of the bakery Revoluções Pães Artesanais, is happy to speak in French or English to you; he makes his products in a woodfired oven that gives his bread a rustic taste. A bit further down the alley there are several big, covered spaces that are used for things like yoga sessions, arts and crafts courses, and other activities. One of the more unique workshops is offered by Together Cafés Especiais where you learn the art of roasting and preparing coffee. At the end of the alley, delightfully camouflaged by the trees and the plants is the restaurant Cozinhas da Terra. Surrounded by huge trees and a wall of green plants is a big outdoor seating area that a German biergarten. The cuisine is Brazilian, and they serve dishes from all corners of the country. It looks delicious and it is rather affordable, but make sure you make a booking as this place is quite popular. In all, it is a wonderful place to visit, a place where you can get lost in nature and the setting and the shops and the food, and easily make an afternoon of it.

Just Marcelo and Just Carlos will hare this one and the start and end point will be at the parking station 9 in the city park. The reason for the location is that it has some good shelter in case of rain as well as access to plenty of trails. And because this is a special Hash, there might be some surprises on and off the trail. As this will be the official Fucking Off Hash for the Somers, we will celebrate their taking part and contributions to the Brasilia H3 after the circle with some German Hot Dogs on bread buns. Therefore, can you please let the Hash master know if you are coming, and with how many people, so we can get the right supplies. As usual, everybody is welcome, but a sense of humor a must.
