Trolley lines still run in this Brazilian city due to some local individuals. The trolleys are very terrrific to view on Saturdays and Sundays, as they are more touristy in nature than actual usage for everyday life. They are located running around Taquaral Lake in Portugal Park. The original streetcars are from the turn of the last century and were manufactured in Philadelphia, Pa. USA. It is nice to see alittle of history in our age in time. Hope you enjoy your weekend there.

The aquatic and natural history museum located in Bosque dos Jequitibas area is a great visit for adults and children. The exhibits of flora and fauna are great. Admission is one real (US fifty cents), and have tour guides present though tours are in Portuguese. Even so, the exhibits are well worth not knowing portuguese. From marine life to mammal. Tours are more affiliated with discussions of biology. You may call at (019)251-9849
