This is a typical speed bump. They are on all the roads

They don't need traffic cops. The thing in the road will take a picture and send them a ticket if they go to fast through here

No weight limit on the roads, so they need to change their tire pressure with each load.

Sun set at the beach

The old train station in Curitiba is a mall and museum

Ellen and her boy friend Josnei
