This is a place to talk about what I've seen around my world.
Feelings, facts and findings.
All these photographic records were made in 2011.
A big thank you to my special friends who, in different ways, have made these pictures possible, including you for seeing them.

Muito obrigada aos meus amigos especiais que, de diferentes maneiras, tornaram essas fotos possíveis, inclusive você por vê-las.
Far far away, in the middle of the desert, you will find the most commercial avenue in the world
Casinos, shows, trades, outlets. Tons of fun to involve all types of tourists. And they come by the tons.
Nowadays Las Vegas receives 11 million tourists a year who move the economy such as the Winn Hotel that employs 8000 people, and the Bellagio where 5000 more people work. People working to accomodate all kinds of happiness and they do it very well.
Vegas, a sureal place to visit. Everything is fake like a mirage and charming like a dream at the same time.
Those videos show more about Vegas, especially these ads which should not to be missed.
I experienced lunchtime at googleplex. For sure every view, everything, everywhere is awesome. It's easy to notice the local rule that nobody can walk more than 100 meters without finding something to eat for free.
The environments and toys available stimulate the creativity of even the most rational human beings: community garden, all kinds of sports, large whirlpools to swim in, Zumba classes, and of course, weight reduction program for googlers.
A special thanks to Natasha Boch. The visit was perfect up until the moment I entered the store and went crazy.
After having lunch at Google... why not have dinner at Facebook! My dear friend says that those who have friends in Silicon Valley never go hungry.
The best thing that I read there: Bad news doesn't get better with age.
Without an appointment I was received with great kindness by designer Alex Coriano who showed me the offices; the shop, which has 3 printers for prototyping; the toyland, with all the resources to edit videos that explain new toys; the restaurant, where lunch is served only on Tuesdays.
I even got the book Change by Design by Tim Brown, as a gift.
It was really great to see the birthplace of design thinking
Our trees, wind and sea say welcome to everybody.
De volta a capital mais ao sul do país que mudou a minha vida
