Series on my trip to CURITIBA - The Capital City of the State of PARANÁ - The Southern Region of BRAZIL - From May 14th to 16th 2010 - # 015 !
CURITIBA VISTA DA TORRE DAS MERCÊS !
CURITIBA SEEN FROM THE MERCÊS TOWER !
CURITIBA is the capital city of the STATE OF PARANÁ and its largest one! It's in the EASTERN part of the state, pretty close to the sea (SOUTHER ATLANTIC OCEAN), but almost 900 meters above sea level (UP IN THE PLATEAU OF THE SEA MOUNTAIN RANGE/PLANALTO DA SERRA DO MAR), and for that reason it's one of the coldest cities in Brazil (certainly the coldest large one, the coldest capital city!).
It's grown a lot in the last decades and fortunately it has grown better than the other brazilian cities, specially with regards to its urbanistical planning!
A TOUR BUS passes by, every half hour, all the main touristical attractions of the city!
PROTESTS are taking place in CURITIBA too! They have started because bus tickets were raised once more and quality is the same: poor! But, then, they have spread out because police has been rude and all the problems people face can't be born any longer: bad public education, health care, security and so forth... yes, many brazilians love soccer, samba, beach and beautiful women... but we're not only that, we don't want to be only that... we're one of the wealthiest countries in the World and our population stills starves in some places... our cities are full of "favelas", know all over the World, many reasons why, but corruption, bad politicians, bad administration... gee, we can't put up with that anymore!

Yes, I heard of the demonstrations in Brazil. But here they mentioned (only) Rio.
It's remarkable that so many skyscrapers have a different colour.
In front of that 'urban jungle' we find a nice green area.
Excellent high viewpoint.
Best regards, Paul

un pov da vertigini, molto bella la vista da quassù.
Ottima profondità, una foresta di torri, una foresta moderna.

fascinating notes to accompany this amazing shot of Curitiba. You excel at shots like this with so much to look at and detail. Eye-catching imagery!
The protests are making the headlines in the UK and I can sympathise with the reasoning behind them.

Impressionnante vue générale sur Curitiba et sa "forêt" d'immeubles.

Que saudade de Curitiba, umas da cidades mais agradáveis que visitei, faz 20 anos que não vou lá e gostei muito de rever essa vista lá da torre. Eu mesmo tenho uma foto daí aqui no meu álbum.
