What a shame. This thread was doing absolutely great...

Stop being so arrogant Alan... I mean people, I thought in the Southern Cone we had better relations between the three countries but I see that there is one country that still shows envy and start arguing like children making this thread the worst ever.


I would maybe expect this from the new forumers but not from some forumers that have more than one year on SSC...

Forumer "sebvill":

You dont have to post 5 times, one after the other.
In fact that is not even double-post . . . its multi-post, and its not allowed. You have to write all what you want to say in one post, or at least wait for a single response.

Stop embarrasing yourselves with those childish arguments and ridiculous explanations please.... on both sides... i really cannot believe some of the things ive read.

I actually think Santiago´s skyline looks better, i love my city but im allowed to admire something else.

really stop arguing

But I must tell you, that it is a horrible city. Im sorry, I dont know what the "Paulistas" think about their city . . . but I think as a tourist and as an architectural taster. It is not a beautiful city, most buildings are uggly, and there is not an efficient city planning.
It is not a "city for the people", I mean its just for bussiness and for see it from the plane. There are not nice public spaces . . . but
Anyway, Yeah, Sao Paulo should be in this poll, it has as I have said . . . the most impressive skyline.
BULLSHIT!

About the last photo.....Viña, Concepción and Antofagasta, in Chile, all smaller than Guayaquil, looks hughe skylines. Of course, a lot of another cities in Argentina, too smaller than Guayaquil, looks hughe skylines.

About of the top SA skyline, my opinion (It rules) is:

1. Sao Paulo
2. Bs As
3. Santiago
4. Caracas
5. Bogotá
6. Curitiba
7. Behlo Horizonte
8. Rio de Janeiro
9. Rosario
10. Lima

That's all, and no more.

:
so? Santiago is bigger than Dubai, Milan bigger than Gold Coast and Mexico City bigger than Chicago. Each city develops on its own way.

and its huge not hughe. You can´t say "looks huge skylines" or "too smaller than" either. It would have to be something more like "have huge skylines" and "also smaller than".
