CHOPPERIA GIOVANNETTI - CENTRO DA CIDADE DE CAMPINAS - FEIÚRA URBANA!

GIOVANNETTI RESTAURANT & BAR - DOWNTOWN CAMPINAS - URBAN UGLINESS!

Last Monday, once more, I took my camera with me to work and when going back home, again, I took some more pictures of downtown Campinas.

GIOVANNETI is a traditional spot in CAMPINAS since 1937 (it was inaugurated by an italian immigrant called Enrico Giovannetti). This picture was taken in front of its first location. There were already four ones in the city (around the downtown area), but today only two and one more in a mall (in the outskirst of the city). People mostly go there for happy hour or at night (including late hours).

These summer days have been rainy and cloudy. I like it though, because we're having lower temperatures!

Unfortunately, downtown Campinas is getting uglier and uglier because of visual pollution, decaying buildings etc., as a result, for example, of bad administrations, among other reasons!

CAMPINAS is a big city, 96km northwest of the city of SÃO PAULO and part of one of the largest metropolitan areas in the state of São Paulo and in Brazil. It had 1,088,611 estimated inhabitants in 2011, being the third most populated city in the State of São Paulo and the fourteenth most populated city in Brazil.
