Downtown São Paulo @ dusk

The Paulistano city planners didn’t fool around when they addressed the issue of facilitating car traffic in the city. The result is that Sampa is xtremely car orientated and that the main thoroughfares are 3 or 4 lane freeways. The town sometimes looks like a complex free way system with the buildings as an afterthought.

 

This shot was taken from the downtown Viaducto do Cha, in southern direction where the traffic coming out of the Anhangabau tunnel can choose between two major thoroughfares : the Av 9 de Julio and Av 23 de Mayo.
