The Freedom of Square 4
Brazil

The Freedom Square is located in Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais - Brazil. It was built at the time of the foundation of the city and hosted,  in its begining, some public buildings, as the Palace of Government and the first Secretaries of State. The landscape and architectural complex of The Freedom Square is a synthesis of styles that mark the history of Belo Horizonte. Over the years, the complex was being built in different architectural styles. In the decade of 1950-1960, The Niemeyer Building and  The Public Library were built, both designed by Oscar Niemeyer. The track and the gardens were inspired by the Palace of Versailles. The square also has a bandstand and a light source. The square is one of the most important turistic places in Belo Horizonte. This photo was taken from inside the bandstand of the square.

More About Brazil

Here's your soundtrack. Okay, maybe they're not exactly brazillian but their music is awesome and their live shows legendary.Now, Brazil covers almost half of South America and its Amazon rainforest is the world's largest jungle... which is rapidly getting cut down. The country is basically one giant botanical garden with some bangin' cities on its edges.Brazil was colonized in 1808 by the royal court of Portugal, which was fleeing Napolean's troops. They didn't stay long, and Brazil won its independence in 1822.Its biggest city, Sao Paulo, is the financial hub of South America. Brazil is the "b" in BRIC -- Brazil, Russia, India and China. These four were labeled the world's fastest developing large economies in the year 2001.Brazil is known for three things: amazingly beautiful women, carnival, and Pele -- King of Football, Athlete of the Century, football ambassador of the world and a declared national treasure.Brazillians can tell foreigners a mile away, by the way their hips move. Samba is built into the soul of brazil and carnival is when it bursts out into twenty-four hour undying explosions of sound on every street.This picture of mask diving at the Taipus reefs makes me shed hot and salty tears all over my calendar, which is set on "January" right now.Text by Steve Smith.
