This will be a hard program. It started at 8 am, but after a good and really sweet breakfast.
We met at the cathedral Curitiba after a visit to the Freias Market we wanted to use the very special Linha Turismo for 15 Reais. You can change the Bus five times.
At first we went to the famous market Freias at the Garibaldi Square. There are a lot of small shops with really interesting and for me new things.
And they had these nice pictures. Kari wanted to buy one and I got a very good discount for her.
But it was still expensive and I think the painter has known that and so he gave us three more pictures, though not colored.
We started with my favorite destination the botanic garden. It isn`t as big as I thought before, but quite nice. The main attraction is not the garden in the house, because this is really small, it is the house its self.
And the exhibition in the glass house surrounding the main green house.
And there is also a big Park around, and some souvenir shops. There I tried the first time these dried Bananes. And they are good! :)
But really fabulous is the Universidade Livre de Meio Ambiente. It is so strange, you are in a city and then you enter the jungle and a MYST Place.
It reminded me so strongly at this PC Game. There you can go upstairs having a great view over a lake and a bit far over the City.
So lets go to the Park Tangua. I liked it but it was not so impressive like the two things before. But there is also a Waterfall and a small cave. And it is quite big with its 450 000 mē.
The Opera Arame is however again special.
It was also constructed by Niemeyer. And by the way he was the architect of the City Brasilia, the capital of Brazil!
It is a glass house and I can not imagine if it has good acoustics.
Wow I am tired! And so hungry, because we didn`t eat something.
But there is only one more sight to visit. The Television Tower. And we had a great view over the city for 3 Reais. But the windows were reflecting and so I have pictures with myself. Interesting Pictures ;) but funny
Special Meeting ... And You are famous? We don`t Care
We went very and I mean very hungry to the SHopping Mall near hour hostel. And there I ate a lot and there was also Sushi. I didn`t really know that it is so good.I mean I have prepared it myself, but I am not a Japanese.
And so we wanted to leave the Mall, but then Kari wanted to eat Ice Cream, She loves it. And so we said bye to Claudia and to Aleksandra.
We were eating Ice, and by the way thanks to you Kari, because she invited Aniko and me to that very delicious Ice. But during we were eating a man asked us if we would speak English. I was a bit surprised, but then he talked with us a lot. There were also some other friends of him, and they told us ... That is Fred Mills a very very famous musician. He is international famous and he has played all over the world. Mhmmm
Nice to meet you Fred Mills :) And I got a Autogramm :) And if we are really lucky he will send us a CD of himself.
