Places that you love.
Dear Alex, and dear all,
A soft breeze is refreshing the air, and a cosy and sweet jasmine smell surrounds my home, outside a storm begins to form in the sky, the silence inside the house is only interrupted by the thunder sound. The green colour of the grass become more vivid when starts to rain, showing a terrific scene.
I really enjoy afternoons like this, when after a long day of work, you just arrive at home and relax. Sometimes is really good find yourself alone and take some minutes only for you, don´t you think?
Do you have any place that you like to go when you have a day off work in order to spend some hours just relaxing and enjoying the day?
I have one, and this place is the São Paolo State Pinacoteca ( Pinacoteca do Estado de São Paulo). It´s a beautiful building neighbour of Luz Train/Subway Station, which is very good for me, because I just have to take a train in Mogi and in 25 minutes I arrive there.The Pinacoteca building itself is a master piece, and it has a incredible collection with well known artists such as Rodin, Almeida Jr, Di Cavalcanti, Cândido Portinari, Tarsila do Amaral, Miró, among others.
I love spending my Saturdays afternoons there, just seated in a bench admiring my favourite paints, or wandering around trying to capture any single different nuance in this beloved place. Everytime I go there, I always discover something different and delightful. Oh, of course I can´t forget to mention that attached to Pinacoteca building, there is a very charming café, which serves a marvelous coffe, therefore I like to sip mine in one of the tables set outside of the café, which has a view to Luz Park, simply wonderful. Moreover, on Saturdays the Pinacoteca opens for free, you don´t have to pay anything to visit this amazing place. It´s fantastic, isn´t it ?
So, if one day you decide to come to São Paolo, you must come to Pinacoteca, you won´t regret to visit there.
I tried to uploaded my photo at the Pinacoteca, however I´m afraid that it´s too heavy. What a pity, it´s a beautiful photo, indeed.
All the best,
Have a good night,
