Florianópolis means city of flowers.
Very old buildings mixed with very new buildings
Building materials near Lagoa do Peri
The tunnels to the downtown area.
The favela of Floripa.
In the middle of the city is a small park with this 350 year old tree.
The Tree of Life. This is one very old tree.
Night time shot of the gnarley 350 year old tree lit up with a green spotlight.
Many streets were closed to cars to allow pedestrian shopping.
Lots of crazy promotions everywhere.
Floripans walking the strange city streets.
I've never seen so many pastel buildings.
The tree limbs had metal supports to keep them up.
Some pigeons waiting to poop on the next sorry soul.
The Floripan Tree of Life
The Flag of Florianopolis
Lots of very different architecture.
Some of these buildings are hundreds of years old.
