Highway through Brazilia

Leaving Ciuaba

From Ciuaba we traveled on a fast bus connection to Brasilia and from there on to Rio. This posting has a series of images shot from the bus, with a section in central Brasilia while we waited for the next connection.

It gives a flying if a little fuzzy impression of central Brazil with the vast plains and small brick houses reminiscent of the favellas of Rio.

Brasilia was wet and bleak. It is said that when the capital was moved from Rio to Brasilia, many public servants became depressed at the change from a vital cultural metropolis to an artificially constructed featureless inland contrivance of a city.
