Yep. he is Christian, but his family is of Lebanese / Arab origin

As for the subways, there´s still a long way to go.... so far we had only three new stations this year. IF plans are followed as proposed, what´s not common in Brazil, we will have seven subway lines by 2018.... plus two or three monorail lines.

I wish that other cities could have as fast of a growing system as that of São Paulo. A question, since I'm not an expert on the city or its transport: How much is the Metro expected to reduce road congestion?

Difficult to say, but given the new Line 2 expansion and the complete line 4 will absorb at least 1,5 million passengers a day until 2012, i'd say maybe an overall positive impact of 8% in the city's main areas. The problem is that the fleet of automobiles will have grown at least 8% until then

Unfortunately it seems that it will still take some time to open it ...

mopc, do you know anything about the Pinheiros Bus Terminal? if it will be in this area of the photo, together with the subway station of same name, or if it will be in that large area in front of the Faria Lima station?

The construction on the first plane is the bus terminal. Only the round construction behind it is the Pinheiros Station. If it was a snake... .
