I’m finally back home after nearly a month on the road. Starting in Brasilia, the capital city of Brazil.
Quite an amazing city, Brasilia. It’s probably the newest of any major city on the entire planet. Designed and built in just 1950 as the “ideal” city, it serves as the capital of Brazil. Headquarters of all forms of government are there. The planners obviously did their homework. The design clearly allows for maximum traffic flow. All the major roads go over or under each other where they intersect. The traffic doesn’t need to slow at all. Bravo!
The World Cup will be coming to Brazil in 2014 and the new national stadium looks GREAT. I couldn’t help but focus on it in many of the pictures you’ll find in the gallery below.
