Agree 100%, culturally. But financially: for example, Brazil's largest bank is larger than all of Mexico's banking system...

But Paulista could definitely become more dignified by getting rid of the hundreds of flea-markets and Elvis imitators on the sidewalks.

Ce sont naturellement les Champs Elysées, se plantant dans le Louvre qui sont la plus belle avenue du monde.

This look just like something done on Sim City. It is a beautiful use of a park right in the middle of the median of the avenue. Really wish other cities could learn from this and add it to their cities grand avenues, it is just a stupendous wonderful idea.
