Green & Gray


Dia destes eu estava viajando no "google earth" e resolvi procurar por alguns lugares onde vivi. Engraçado vêr as coisas sob outro ângulo, me senti como um anjo voando por aí. E algumas coisas me chamaram atenção, como a diferença entre as cores de Londres (mais precisamente em East Dulwich, onde passei o ano de 2000) e São Paulo, onde vivo agora. Verde e cinza. Árvores e concreto. Casas e prédios. É um pouco sufocante perceber esta discrepância. De que maneira isto pode influenciar no trabalho de uma pessoa? Ao menos uma coincidência: na minha atual esquina também posso contar com um pub irlandês!

One of these days I was "traveling" on google earth and found some places where I lived. It's kinda funny to see things trough a different angle, I felt like an angel flying around here and there. I was shocked to see how London - where I lived in 2000 - is green and how grey is São Paulo - where I live now. Trees versus concrete. Houses versus buildings. I wonder how it influences a person's work - not to mention health. That's really sad but at least I can still count on an Irish pub at the corner of my street.

You're right, Sao Pablo looks very gray, so as Buenos Aires. It's sad, really. I know!!! let's move back to London!! (if only...).
I woke up a little crazy today, can you tell?

Bye

Believe me Pablo, São Paulo is way greyer than Buenos Aires - which I had the priviliege to visit a couple of years ago. The buildings are shorter and you have more trees and parks. I really liked your city! Palermo Viejo, Palermo Hollywood... the amazing Zoo in the middle of some buildings! (where I fought I was going to be eaten by a bear, because there is no fence between us and him- there's a deep ditch that you just realize that exists when you're really close to the bear, allready scared to death!
