Casa Vasquez & Filhos
Brazil

A então Casa Vasquez & Filhos foi construída em 1909 pelo arquiteto italiano Martino Santa Lucci. No andar térreo era um grande salão aberto, de pé-direito duplo, com um mesanino em uma das laterais, uma escada de madeira, que levava ao 2º andar, e uma divisória de madeira art-nouveu, provavelmente onde funcionava o Caixa da Casa Comissária. Os pilares são metálicos, estrutura independente, e fechamento com tijolo, elemento de construção não existente na região na época. O local foi restaurado pelo Programa Monumenta em 2006. Antes da reforma sofreu depredações e processo de deterioração e infiltração, ao longo de décadas de abandono por antigos proprietários (Wikipedia: http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memorial_do_Homem_Pantaneiro)

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.
