Photographer's Note

I visited the City's Park (Lady Sara Kubistchek Park). It is the central park of Brasília, filled with wild trees of Brazilian savanna and small lakes and lawns. There are many small structures for the restrooms and on them we can recognize the amazing artwork of Athos Bulcão in tiles.
This park became famous because a song of 1980's. Created by Renato Russo, a famous local band leader, one of the most important artists of Brazil. The lyrics of the song tells about a couple: Eduardo and Mônica, she was a adult woman, he was a teen yet, they are very different one of the other, but they fall in love. The song became a movie few months ago. The first meeting of the couple was in this park, and there is a monument to the song there. The lyrics are long, here I show you the part it tells about the meeting in the park, there is a link if you want to heard the song and learn more about my country:

... They met then in the City's Park
Mônica was riding her motorcycle
Eduardo was ridding his camel
Eduardo became surprised
cause she had ink on her hair
but he decided don't mention nothing about that.
Eduardo & MÔnica weren't very different
she was Lion and he was 16 years old
she was learning Medicine and talked in German
while he was in the basic English classes yet...


Visitei o Parque da Cidade (Parque Dona Sara Kubitschek), que é o parque urbano central da cidade, cheio de árvores doc errado, gramados e pequenos lagos. Existem várias estruturas de apoio com sanitários e nas paredes podemos ver os lindos azulejos criados por Athos Bulcão.
Esse parque é famoso pois foi aqui que Eduardo e Mônica se encontraram pela primeira vez, ela de moto e o Eduardo de camelo. O Eduardo achou melhor não comentar, mas a menina tinha tinta no cabelo.
