From Sao Paulo to Montevideo by Land - The city of Curitiba

On the way back to Montevideo y stopped by Curitiba which is an ultra-modern city located in the southern state of Parana in Brazil, with a population approaching two million.
One of the fastest growing cities in the country, it boasts a brand new Bus Transportation system which has an exclusive lane with “central hubs” within the city, where the long buses with two connected coaches in tandem carry people across the city, like a subway above ground. It served as inspiration for cities in South America and in the states.
What called my attention. also was the new infrastructure courtesy of the World Cup budget, that resembles much more North America, than the usual sloppy south American standards
