Sao Paulo

Sao Paulo is South Americas financial centre. During decades the city has recieved millions of immigrants from Italy, Spain, Korea, Japan, Lebanon, Germany and from the Brazilian rural areas, specially in the Northeast of the country. The Sao Paulo stock market is one of the largest in the World and the State of Sao Paulo produces everything from maize, meat and wheat to cars, airplanes and electronic goods.

Traffic in Sao Paulo is a major problem. Rich excecutives and businessmen prefer to move in helicopters. The city has the biggest number of helicopters in the World.

love all these photos but due to the copy right issue recently, all photos must be sourced properly or they will be deleted. Sorry!

At the end of each post is the Copyright. In the first post is hard to identify the authors because I took them from a recopilation made in Latinscrapers that it didnt have proper copyrights. From now on, Ill put the name of the forumer who post it for the first time. Unless is from Flickr or other page, then Ill put the author of that page.

Next city --> Mexico City

I used to post the flickr photos just like what you did on your above post and flickr rejected it and the reason is even I wrote down the authors name but its not good enough for them. They need us to copy and paste a direct link back to its authors page. We have no other option or they will take away our right to hot link their photos to SSC, so your cooperation will be greatly appreciated.

The instruction to credit all flickr photo is on my 'How to credit flickr photos' thread.

Ok. Ill follow those rules from now on. You (or other moderator) should write to moderators in Latinscrapers so they reinforce this rules in there by demanding the forumers the same treat for the pictures post in the Latin forums as you demand in here. Right now their are a lot of pictures from Flickr being post without following this rules, so I cant use them for this thread because I dont know the original authors. Although probably many of those authors are SSC forumers.
