Photographer's Note

This is another old travel photo of mine, and in fact there isn't anything special here, except for the sign and this story I can tell you...

At that day, some minutes before this shot, we met a guy selling tickets for a show we wanted to go. Bought the tickets and talked a little with him. He had been to São Paulo, Brazil, before and something that he said he would remember forever was the "churrasco" he ate here. Well, we walked some minutes and got this restaurant, a "churrascaria", brazilian speciality. Huh?

We had already had lunch, so we didn't try this place... :-)

But, in fact, "churrascarias" are a very distinctive restaurant in São Paulo, and in Brazil as a whole. Some of them serves in "rodízio" (could be translated as "rotation"), which means that the waiters pass by with different kinds of meat and you get the ones you want, no limit.

In São Paulo, probably our most expensive city, you would pay about US$10 or 15 to eat "churrasco" (may be translated as "barbecue"), but with the difference that you can eat as much as you can (or as much you can fill into your stomach). Salads, also, and rice, and potatoes, and... and... And yes, it' good, very good, though you may think of it as a kind of orgy.

It's not exactly cheap for brazilian wages in average. But it is very, very cheap if you make international/tourist comparisons.

So we found very funny to see this sign in Vienna, a city where, as far as I know, hasn't received so many brazilian immigrants or workers. I wouldn't be so surprised if it was in New York, or Paris, for instance. So, I shot it!

It was taken with a Canon snapshot and digitalized with a Genius Color Page SP2X scanner. I corrected the colors and perspective, and shapness after size reduction.
