REMEMBERING MY HIGH SCHOOL DAYS... RELEMBRANDO MEUS DIAS DE GINÁSIO...

I completed high school in the school named "Escola Caetano de Campos", at Republic Square, in Downtown São Paulo, Brazil. Eu completei o ginásio na "Escola Caetano de Campos", situada na Praça da República, em São Paulo. (I did the same post in December 05, 2009, but I've added more two pictures).

What a gorgeous school! Did you go back recently? The last time I visited my primary school, I found everything was NOT as I remembered. It all looked a lot smaller, for a start!

Are the aerial shots taken from a helicopter? I understand it's quite common for people in a hurry to get around in Sao Paulo by chopper. I guess they must be RICH people in a hurry lol! ;)

Such a BEAUTIFUL Building, my dear Sonia....And I am always awed by how huge San Paolo is---That curved building is so very fantastic---If I remember correctly, isn't that the Building that is so BIG it has it's own Zip Code? MAGNIFICENT!!!!

sonia a. mascaro said...

Yes, you are right my dear Naomi!
Copan, that curved building due to the large number of residents, the city hall gave the building its own ZIP code.
More informations about this amazing building:

* The building name was inspired by a Mayan Temple in Honduras.
* The building is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest structure built in Brazil.

Lovely school Sonia!! I am always amazed by the architecture in Sao Paulo and the many wonderful buildings there. I would love to visit that city someday! I was just reading the comment about the curved building having it's own zip code. I don't think I'd want to live in that huge building!! It is quite amazing though!!

PJ said...

What an amazing building!

Susan Campisi said...

Ah, I went back to look at the old photos to compare. What a gorgeous old building, It's fantastic that the city rose up around your high school and all that green space was preserved.

My high school was Rhodes Prep located on E. 54th Street in NYC. It was a townhouse with an elevator converted into a high school. Our "chief" was Mr. Merril of Merril, Lynch, Fenner and Smith. I met some people there who affected my live in not the best ways..imagine walking down the stairwell and meeting someone who would never let go...sometimes you never know who you meet. Those days were fun!!I used to cut classes and go to Tiffany's and Central Park and hang out. I miss Dr. Lawrence, headmaster of Rhodes. xoxoxoxoMelanie
