I am in São Paulo to attend a lecture on the Olympics at Casper Libero School, which is in the Gazette building. I arrived early for a change. I decide to seek an express across the street in the São Paulo beach building on Alameda Joaquim Eugenio de Lima. I worked there once, an English language school in 1980. Today it is Hooters restaurant chain, I realize with some amazement.
Nothing to do with the problems of the world, just a peaceful stroll along Avenida Paulista in the country of my retirement.
