I had the opportunity to visit Brasilia last year for a conference. Very interesting city.
I saw the beautiful bridge across the lake.
And clothing stalls.
Dried nuts and fruits.
An interesting bra store.
A food stand that makes pastels - sheets of dough filled with things and then fried. You can pick your filling - sweet and savory.
I like seeing the markets because they're very real - real people doing real shopping.
The rest of Brasilia is so planned it has a very different feel. Since it was planned and created all at once the look is very consistent - not what I'm used to in other cities that grow over time and are a jumble of styles and periods.
I love the way the government bureaucratic buildings all look exactly alike and line up like dominoes - the perfect thing for bureaucrats.
And I like the way the church resembles Space Mountain.
It's a city built for cars, not for walking. And it gets deserted on weekends. I think it would be a great place to film a zombie apocalypse movie!
