"Pongáio" was the name my Aunt Mona gave to a long, green, cool room where we gathered at her home —
replete with comfy chairs, a rocker, sewing machine, sewing goods, beautiful beads, shelves, books, bibelots, photographs, odds'n'ends, mementos of a life, treasures —
a gathering of all the useful & 'useless' things that so make life a pleasure.

This a photo from a pousada — ± bed-and-breakfast, or little hotel — site.
I haven't been there (although, I wish!) but it's so typical of our dream mineiro breakfast or afternoon lanche, that I just had to post it! Quitutes, juices, fruit, bread and a good fogão a lenha.

pousada da terra - tiradentes
This from the web (of course!), but I didn't write down the complete site name, and now I'm not sure from which Pousada it is — the name I had doesn't have this photo on its site! Oh dear!
I have it as a pousada in Tiradentes, MG. As soon as I find the it (I hope!) I'll put the link.
Update: Mystery solved - it's from their Facebook! Here's the link: Pousada da Terra
