Age of consent?

On weekends, you can visit the neighboring town of Mariana via “historic train” (really, it’s just a new train constructed to look old in order to lure tourists to pay the R$18 per person to ride it – doh!).   Mariana was basically a less-dramatic version of Ouro Preto – smaller town center, gentler hills, fewer restaurants.  What it had, however, that Ouro Preto lacked, was child weddings (you have to see the pictures to believe it – the girl had a 6 foot train on her dress) and a weird rock band whose lead singer wore what looked suspiciously like a prison jumpsuit.
