Day 43 :: Eixo Rodoviário

Buildings along the Eixo Rodoviário.

In a city sparse with sidewalks and for some reason, taxis, today offers little in terms of excitement. I essentially woke up and just walked for hours up and down the main axis of Brasilia, taking in its austerity and attempting to space out the buildings worth seeing over the length of my stay.

I was supposed to meet a friend here, an architect named Daniel Mangabeira and his partner, but there seem to be some issues with communication that may prevent our rendezvous; regardless, tomorrow will bring a sweeping tour of the rest of Niemeyer’s disasters.
