That was most intelligent of you, I didn'd see it like that! But: 1. american cities have landmark buildings, most of them could be recognized by them (New York, Chicago, Seattle, LA, San Fran) 2. I did mention the natural surroundings, I'm not retarded you know
!? But except the shore lines and mountains, which make your cities unique, you have to accept that except the statue of Jesus (which is natural surroundings integrated) and that cathedral in Rio, plus the curvey wayvey building in Sao Paulo, there aren't many landmark buildings! And you can't deny the favelhas, which are omnipresent! 3. It is how "I" see things, ignorrantly from behind my computer screen, so don't take it personal! 4. I meant big cities, take a snapshot of a dense region from Sao Paulo, Recife and Belo Horizonte, eliminate the surroundings and tell me they don't look exactly the same! Maybe you know certain buildings, addvertisments etc. but I don't so to me that is confusing!
It wasn'a a critic for the urban developers of Brazil! Rather than having commie blocks, believe me I would choose a brazilian developer out of 1000! Just that I know how similar cities can be, I live in Romania, who's cities look almost identical, if not for the old quarters of town, due to the commie building projects, that follow a single pattern: build ugly and cheap!
