Almost a couple of weeks in Porto Alegre to do my 40th with family and school friends. It was still winter so rained most days, did not manage to go to te beach there at the end. Saw the traditional Faroupilha revolution parade on my birthday, Farroupilha camping in the Parque Maurício Sirotsky Sobrinho, some shots around the administrative center and Parque Marinha. Managed aso to see the art bienal, its not as big as it used to just covering the main art museums, the ones around Praça da Alfândega, MARGS, Memorial do Rio Grande do Sul, Santander Cultural and away from the historical center on the Iberê Camargo. Also managed to see Casa de Cultura Mario Quintana and the new Centro Cultural Érico Veríssimo, the Beira Rio Stadium been done up for the world cup, my own team’s New stadium voted the world stadium of the year, Arena do Grêmio.
