Ghana who?

Ghana who?

Brazil scored 3 goals in the Round-of-16 game against Ghana today, and we will play the Quarter-finals next Saturday, against either France or Spain (playing later today).

In the picture, my buddies from the office during the game-lunch, a classical Brazilian barbecue. ;)

Dude, where is my car?


Some stupid driver parked his car in front of my office, in a prohibited place, and probably gone to watch the Brazil x Croatia game, last tuesday. The prefecture take away the car with a tow winch and leave this plaque. Poor stupid driver. :p


But Brazil wins, that's good news. ;)

Guess what?

We only work until 2pm today because people have to watch Brazil v. Croatia. The World Cup is a very, very serious business here.

Stands on Avenida Paulista

And yes, we know. São Paulo daily photo. We get the daily part of the deal. But in our defense, it's World Cup days! and blogger has been very weird.

Here you can see the bed I mentioned in another post and where the shelves are. That's Cuca, again, on my bed. Say "hi", Cuca! :)

And let's not talk about that disgusting astray full of cigarette butts, mmkay? I know! It's horrible to be a smoker! :~

Although the amusement park where I've taken this picture is not exactly in São Paulo (but 30 minutes from here - and what is a 30-minutes drive anyway? People take more than a half hour to get to their workplaces every day), I thought I'd post it - look at those colors. 10 people lined up facing the horses had to throw balls into holes. Each hole was worth a certain amount of points and would make the horse corresponding to his/her, ummm, table (?) move further.


And I thought, 'Isn't it just an older version of a videogame?'. Except you get to see your competitors, and interact, which is way, way nicer.

Talking about books again

I don't know what's the deal with these new apartments. There's just not enough room for books - or other stuff for that matter; I've mentioned books because I happen to care about mine. My room is extremely small - as the apartment is, so I had the idea to get this bed on wheels and have the walls covered with shelves where I'd put my books.


Isn't that the worst picture ever? Out of focus, with the flash all augh...

Anyway. They say these new apartments are small because (a) if they're small, they are cheaper and then people can afford them; and (b) people don't spend time in their homes anymore. Well, why should them? With so little room, people would of course want to spend all the time they possibly can out. I was talking about it with Marcos earlier today. But we talked mostly about kitchens. Kitchens so small they look like hallways. Disgusting. I'll be posting more pictures of the apartment I live in (and hopefully Beth and Marcos will too, someday), so you can see what a Brazilian apartment looks like.

This is another sculpture that stands in the garden of the museum Lasar Segall. The website is very, very nice (I didn't know they had an English version of it), and you can read about his life. There's also an online exhibition available.

Another peek at the library

Sometimes we find some closed doors. It's funny. These pictures were taken a long time ago and I was unaware that my life was about to change completely. So, yes, some doors had been closed so I could open new ones. Oh, so cheesy. [sigh]

I don't live here anymore

I don't live here anymore

So, I finally moved. I have a new home, and the same old problems, and the same old job and the same old camera, but I promise to improve my pics and come here more often. ;)
