“These photos were taken around the area where I live, Vila Anglo Brasileira and Pompeia, very close to Vila Madalena, which is home to Beco de Batman (Batman Alley), a place visited by throngs of tourists for its famous graffiti”

⭐ THANK YOU, CAROLEE! ⭐

Carolee Croft is a Canadian writer currently living in Sao Paulo, Brazil. She writes novels that are in her own words “I hope not too naughty for your audience”. I find that a tad endearing coming from an admitted fan of Spongebob. You can find her books on  Carolee’s Books on Amazon

A Crustacean & Sharks in Newcastle

Today, an Australian treat from Carolyn Page of ABC of Sprit Talk

“Look at the little crustacean. He has dollar notes in his shell..!!”

“and the little fish has dollar signs painted on it…  I only discovered these when I zoomed in….  Don’t know the connection there; but think it’s worth a mention.”

This shark seems quite dapper in his elegant bow tie.

Newcastle, Australia

“Just a little background on Newcastle:”

“Newcastle is a harbour city in the Australian state of New South Wales. Its plentiful beaches are linked by the Bathers Way, a coastal walk stretching between Nobbys Beach and Merewether Beach. The walk provides access to Bogey Hole, a convict-built ocean bath from the colonial period. Also on the path is the 1880s Fort Scratchley, a historic site and a viewpoint for spotting migrating whales.”

Although there are no whales on these boxes, Carolyn says:

“I’ve seen the migrating whales a couples of times. They are absolutely majestic! I especially love it when a mother and babe glide effortlessly, and seemingly slowly through the water. A brilliant sight.”

Argentina – Independence Day

On July 9, 2017, Argentina has 201 years to its independence history.

Artist: Cesar Alonso Rodriguez

I felt Argentina when I saw this mini-mural, so I sent a pic off to Aquileana from La Audacia de Aquiles, after all, she lives in Argentina.

Artist: Cesar Alonso Rodriguez

She replied, “YES that graffiti certainly seems to depict Argentina…. Tango… Perhaps milongas ( a tango style).”

Artist: Cesar Alonso Rodriguez

It’s like I can hear and feel the music all the way up here in Canada!

⭐ BONUS ⭐ Aquileana sent us some street art from The Boca Juniors Stadium!

“I added several murals surrounding the stadium …
And two pics from the streets nearby it”

“Boca Juniors is one of the two most popular football clubs in Argentina…. Alongside River Plate…. they hate each other… I am a Boca Juniors´fan :D”

“The iconography of these murals is very ARGENTINE.”

⭐ EXTRA BONUS ⭐

Aquileana sent pics from Caminito!

“In (some of) Caminito´s murals you can see a typical family and a technique to write words called FILETEADO.”

“You can Google: Caminito, Buenos Aires, Argentina to see the location, etc…”

I certainly did, and it looks very interesting, not just the location, but the shops and the views!
