Winner of the Month - August (I)

In July Inês came up with the idea of opening a "Winner of the Month" game in the portuguese speaking community forum. This game basically consists of sending a postcard to a randomly chosen winner among the participants in that month game. In August I was the winner and received 12 postcards as prize. 

 São João and Ipiranga avenues signs in São Paulo sent by Luzia.

Exactly one year ago I was in Brazil. The Cathedral of São Paulo was one of the monuments I visited in this big city. The postcard was sent by Maria Gabriela.
The construction of the Cathedral as we see it today began only in 1913. The temple was inaugurated on January 25, 1954, to commemorate the 4th Centenary of the City of São Paulo, still without the two main towers.

Jericoacoara is a village in the municipality of Jijoca, 300km from Fortaleza, on the west coast of Ceará state.
The Pedra Furada, the rock formation on the beach, is one of the famous attractions of the village and is thirty minutes walk from the beach of Jericoacoara.
Postcard sent by Edson.

A few weeks ago Ines went on vacation to Greece. For this game she chose to send me a postcard from the Greek capital.
I want to go to many places in this world but I must say that Athens is not on the top of my list.

Dani decided to send a french card. This is the Salon d'Hercule (also known as the Hercules Salon or the Hercules Drawing Room), on the first floor of the Château de Versailles and connects the Royal Chapel in the North Wing of the château with the grand appartement du roi. - in: wikipedia
