São Paulo, Brazil, by Carlos Cazalis

Photo of the Minhocão elevated expressway in central São Paulo, built in the 1970s to relieve congestion but only uncongested itself on Sundays, when it’s closed for traffic and becomes a sort of public park. Here’s a video of what it looks like on weekdays. I’d heard that the name just meant “big worm” in Portuguese, but it turns out there’s a whole bigfoot-type legend of a truly giant minhocão tunneling somewhere in the jungles of South America. The photographer is originally from Mexico and has worked extensively there and in Europe and Brazil.
