Today was a work day so there's not a
lot to tell. After we got back to the hotel we thought about
dinner and didn't feel like another hotel buffet. Our recent mall
experience was good, and there is a second mall in Campinas, the
"largest in Latin America", so we thought we could eat something over
in the food court if nothing else. At least it wouldn't be way
So we headed to Parque Dom Pedro, a very large mall, not sure how large
but it's plenty big, some 500 stores. The signs for it are
certainly large enough. This is the "water" entrance, there are others
named for birds, flowers, and more.
By this entrance is this large tree-looking thing. From the plaque
we're not positive if this is a 400-year old ficus tree from India, or
if it's art based on someone seeing a 400-year-old ficus tree from
India. Or something like that...
We found the food court, yes, it is huge.
CJ wanted the Fry-Chicken, (it's super, the logo has an S right above
the white band so it must be Super-Chicken) and nothing else sounded
real good so I had beef and spatzle from the pseudo-German place next
door. Both were fine, though not fantastic. What did we
expect from the mall food court?
At least the food court has McInternet:
Sorry it's not more exciting. But there is work afoot. See
