    ha, true Danik. Maybe destroying the beauty of nature can be stopped. Sometimes. Glad you 'get it' - that said, in today's world metaphors are a lost art.

    Those are just some massive containers at the dock. Sort of commerce versus nature thing. just something to shoot. a contrast

    Ha, true. Brazil always had the coolest payphones, those orelhões - they were especially cool when i was a kid. I'd go out of my way to make a call from one. Interesting back story: Chu Ming Silveira (April 4, 1941 – June 18, 1997) was a Chinese Brazilian architect and designer, creator of the Orelhão telephone booth.

    Brazil's payphones are the coolest LOOKING phones in the world. They're lovely to look at. Using them was a different experience entirely. But I will say this, public phones in the United States of America were even worse! At least I thought so.
    But the design of the Brazilian public phones was great. You could talk on the phone and be in the shade, even a little bit protected from some light rain. Great idea! Great design! But, they didn't always work very good. And sometimes I took out my frustration on the public phones in Brazil and made them even worse. I used to have trouble with my temper back then. Then again, I did some pretty mean things to public phones in the USA as well. I'm sorry for blabbering so much. I miss Brazil. I miss Brazil with all my heart. I hate Brazil. I love Brazil.

    It makes me want to travel by plane again. But as usual the plane looks deserted as if it was flying by itself without passengers or crew.
