Well after just over six months in our tiny little flat, we are finally moving somewhere a bit more permanent. We are moving next week into a real house – no more apartment living for us (we say yet again)!!!
But living on the 18th floor definitely has it advantages if you like to watch the world go by, at the moment its school holidays in Sao Paulo, so some kids in a building near us went to fly their kite.
Here is their kite:
And here are the kids:
The best thing is they are thirteen stories up, so their kite is really really really high (kids and kite highlighted):

Talking of departing flights, here is one of neighbours coming home from work (or maybe a hard days shopping, it s hard to tell from here:
Another great thing is the evening views; here is a time exposure shot I got of the evening traffic near our place (including the lights from a passing plane in the top right hand corner)…
We are really going to miss the view, but we sure aint going to miss the twenty four hour traffic noise!!
