weekend in s. paulo
I was very, very impressed by this exhibit ...
No wonder the human body is still of one the greatest mysteries. The complexity and detail are amazing. I was particularly impressed by the circulatory system, and the several displays of fetus and diseased lungs (if I'd been a smoker, I would've quit on the spot).
Definitely not for the faint of heart, but I highly recommend a visit. The exhibit just started in Lisbon this weekend too, and if you're lucky you might not have to wait 2 hours in line like I did (an interesting note: the entrance fee in Portugal is almost double the price than here in Brazil ..)
If you're curious, I found a few photos here
I also went to the exhibit next door, about Leonardo da Vinci. I had seen parts of this exhibit before when it showed in Sintra a couple of years back, but I can't remember if it was this big (my friend F. who worked at the exhibit, can probably tell me).
And of course, Sunday in S. Paulo is not complete without a stroll through the fair in the japanese neighbourhood of Liberdade.
