Correct.

Cosmopolitan city? Alexandria, in the times of the Library. New York, 1930-1980.

If we go to the elementary Wiki...

Cosmopolitanism

Cosmopolitanism is the ideology that all kinds of human ethnic groups belong to a single community based on a shared morality. This is contrasted with communitarian and particularistic theories, especially the ideas of patriotism and nationalism.

.....................................................................................................................
...We could conclude that Latin America is all except cosmopolitan.

No offence to anyone, but the word for Latin America is provincianismo. We are still too poor for being cosmopolitan.

Oh. That.

Let´s see...

If I walked few quarters starting from my house, I could stop at a flower shop called Sakura (not too original, I admit). With my little camera, I could ask the owner: "Hey! Put a Japanese face!". Human diversity 1.

Or I could walk more, and stop at the Korean neighborhood (They sell good cloth). "Put Korean face for the little bird, buddy!" Human diversity 2.

Or I could stop at a Chinese supermarket. "Chang! Put a Chinese face!" Human diversity 3.

Or I could go to the peatonales. For buying something the the Angolans or Nigerians there. "Africa! Show your face!" Human diversity 4.

Or the Armenian club.

Or the Syrian-Lebanese Association.

Or the Mexican restaurants.

Or the Greek collectivity.

Or the Ukrainian.

Or the Russian.

Human diversity N.

Unless you believe in the existence of clon-filled cities, there would be “diversity” everywhere. So, it seems a bit contradictory to claim exceptionalism for your city, basing it in “diversity”.

No offence, dear Tchello, but for me human diversity would be humans with two heads or three arms.

For some reason, all that labelization-classification-particularization seems to me highly artificial. In the end, all we humans come from the monkeys.

Sure, I don´t doub it.

But I don´t care about those things. I am indifferent to them. That´s the point.

But hey, don´t get me wrong...I am not a total pain in the ass. In compensation, I never complain about the aesthetic of any city. That´s an strict business of its inhabitnats, not mine.

If you don`t care, so what are you doing in this thread?

By the way, I don`t like the title either, Tchellooo. It`s kinda arrogant, though it can be true.

WTF?

Who told you that Southern Brazil is homogeneous???
I guess you've never been to Brazil.

I agree, or the thread will be closed. People disrupting it and causing fights will be given infractions. I disagree, personally, with titles like the one for this thread, as they just beg for fights. Sao Paulo is a wonderful city and it would be nice just to enjoy the photos without a fight over "cosmopolitan-ness".

SP reminds me a lot of Los Angeles, and hopefully, as Brazil's economy booms, SP and Rio will rebuild as Los Angeles is doing.

I do like this, however.

Reminds L.A????? Never...As Madonna says Los Angeles is for people who sleep.
