Monday 10 September 2012: The Octavio Frias de Oliveira Bridge
It has been a busy day here in São Paulo, with little time to spare. We had a meeting with the top guy at a major multinational this afternoon, and I was lucky to get this shot just before our meeting started. Twenty minutes into the meeting, we heard a funny sound. The fire alarm! Hence the meeting continued while evacuating the building from the 17th floor! I've never had a meeting like that before! It all ended well!
This is the Octavio Frias de Oliveira bridge is a cable-stayed bridge in São Paulo, Brazil over the Pinheiros River, opened in May 2008. The bridge is 138 meters (453 ft) tall, and connects Marginal Pinheiros to Jornalista Roberto Marinho Avenue in the south area of the city.
