257. Avenida Paulista. Sao Paulo, Brazil

Dear Auntie Dorothy

In Sao Paulo I stayed in a beautiful hotel located
at the famous Avenida Paulista. Very close to it
the fantastic Sao Paulo Museum of Art was built
in 1968. Half underground and half suspended
from a structure, the visible building stand 25 feet
above the floor by means of four pillars connected
by two huge concrete beams. This way the original
and historic plot, the Belvedere Trianon, remains
open to the city keeping at the same time the
magnificent view of the Serra da Cantareira, the
largest native urban forest in the world.
