Series on the CITY of CAMPINAS - State of SÃO PAULO - The SOUTHEASTERN Region of BRAZIL - THE CITY WHERE I'VE BEEN LIVING FOR MORE THAN 28 YEARS (SINCE JANUARY/1986) - #098 !





VELHARIAS !
RUBBISH !

After being sedentary for 3 years (before I used to go jogging almost everyday, for 1h or 1h30min/day, 10km/day) and my doctor telling me that I'm getting old (you're kidding!) and my heart is not as good as it used to be, last week I started going for a fast walk for 1 hour in the morning! For two days, I took my camera with me and took some pictures around my neighboord in the morning!

Nearby a small bodywork and painting, mechanical and electrical work business, I found those old decaying cars and thought it'd be a good subject for a picture of local colors!
VW Beetle was very common here in Brazil, specially in the 70's & 80's. Here, it's called "FUSCA", "FUSQUINHA", "FUSCÃO" and even "BESOURO" or "BESOURINHO" (Beetle).
My father had four of them and his white model from the early 70's was one of my favorite cars of his, that brings me sweet memories of my early childhood!

Behind them, there are abandoned rails that were supposed to be our most modern public means of transportation back in the mid-80's here in CAMPINAS! Of course, it hasn't worked, most of its structure was stolen and it's become a place for thieves and drug addicts in some parts of it! Still, we depend on buses to go everywhere in this one million inhabitant city, considered one of the wealthiest in the Country (and it is)!
