A pretty awesome slideshow:
In the Brazilian city of Porto Alegre lies the 500 meter stretch of Rua Gonçalo de Carvalho - an amazing tree-lined avenue that may well be the most beautiful street in the world. Towering Tipuana trees line both sides of the road, creating an incredible green archway that looks like a mythical forest. It's amazing that this verdant space is actually three blocks in the middle of a modern city! The Tipuana trees along Rua Gonçalo de Carvalho were planted in the 1930′s and they have grown into a shady neighborhood canopy for the past 70 years.
