September 7th

Last friday was a national holiday here on Brazil (independence day). Even though there were lots of problems (my car got damaged while in the parking lot during the week, our planned paths were closed due to independece parties two times, etc), this was a very cool day. I've joined some friends and have gone to Holambra, 135km away from São Paulo, to see the famous expoflora - an exposition of flowers. It's aways nice to pass some time with good friends, forgetting the boring daily routines. The exposition was very interesting. They had (of course) a lot of flowers, one of the coolest being the "rainbow roses" - roses with various colors. Maybe I'll get some photos up sometime... Besides the flowers, they also had some exhibitions of Netherlands traditions, and of old rural stuff. The only downside goes to the organization; sometimes it was hard to find the way on the place (and to the place also), there should have been a lot of extra signs around.
