CURITIBA VISTA DA TORRE DAS MERCÊS - OLHANDO PARA UM OUTRO LADO !
CURITIBA SEEN FROM THE MERCÊS TOWER - LOOKING AT ANOTHER SIDE OF THE CITY !
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", known all over the World, many reasons why, but corruption, bad politicians, bad administration... gee, we can't put up with that anymore! The solutions may be so far away... the obstacles are innumerous... the problems are immense... but this may be the beginning of a new idea about ourselves.

Superbe vue plongeante sur la ville et son lac. Un cadrage optimal pour rendre toute l'importance de la ville.
Très bonne réalisation.

another fascinating shot of this metropolis. Superb depth and a real sense of the size and setting of what is a great looking city. Built up - but lots of green and open spaces.

outra bonita foto de Curitiba vista da torre. Não me lembro daquele lago, fica onde? Quero voltar lá em breve, iria em Agosto, mas vou novamente a Buenos Aires.
Lindas cores e profundidade.
