A strange choice not much frequented by travellers but with a passion for arcitecture, and so greatly impressed by the gallery in niteroi I ventured to check this modernist utopia out.
Dont misunderstand me that I was not glad I went, because I certaintly am. The buildings by Neiymeyer were incredible examples of brasilian modernism, but as soon as I arrived I was ready to leave, and after 20 hours getting there I promptly left the following day for 24 hours to Salvadore...
Imagine a federal city which had somewhat the elements of the Truman show (fyi - film) and some strange post apocalptic traversty, I promise this is not to strong a description
I did see the presidents house too which has a huge completely plain lawn in front of it and wandering round it is one solitary emu, just one, no one knows why he has it there, but there it strolls. hmmmmm.....
so after being completely overwhelmed and impressed by the neiymeyer buildings I made a sharp exit probably not to return.
