More cards from Déa

Yay, more cards from my sweet brazilian sister Déa. The envelope took 1 month to arrive :o but it's finally here.

This is a card from São Paulo, Brazil with a partial view of the Ibirapuera Park and the Bandeiras Monument. The back of the card is signed by the participants of the Postcrossing Meeting in São Paulo on February the 8th and they were: Déa "andreaeiko"; Alessandra "aleoliva86"; Fernanda; Felipe "felipee"; Karina "kazinhabueno"; Paula "Paula_LC"; Valéria "vbformig"; João Paulo "jp33"; Núria "justnunu"; Guilherme "falavigna" and Darla.

Monday i've received a new whs from Czech Republic and today a new one. This is the Villa Tugendhat in Brno. Now, i only miss 2 unesco whs from Czech Republic.
"The Tugendhat Villa in Brno, designed by the architect Mies van der Rohe, is an outstanding example of the international style in the modern movement in architecture as it developed in Europe in the 1920s. Its particular value lies in the application of innovative spatial and aesthetic concepts that aim to satisfy new lifestyle needs by taking advantage of the opportunities afforded by modern industrial production.
The Tugendhat Villa is a masterpiece of the Modern Movement in architecture. The German architect Mies van der Rohe applied the radical new concepts of the Modern Movement triumphantly to the Tugendhat Villa to the design of residential buildings. Architecture was revolutionized by the Modern Movement in the 1920s and the work of Mies van der Rohe, epitomized by the Tugendhat Villa, played a major role in its worldwide diffusion and acceptance." - in:
