Looks like...

Greetings, all. We at Murder is Everywhere are here because of Leighton Gage. We miss him. We thought we'd share some of his posts with you from time to time. This one is a tiny introduction to what makes Brazil so special....

Looks like Coimbra's University Library in Portugal:

But it's Brazil's National Library in Rio de Janeiro.

Looks like the Netherlands:

But it's the town of Holambra in the State of São Paulo.

Looks like an island in the Dutch Carribean:

But, once again, it's Holambra.

Looks like a train station in England:

But it's one in São Paulo

Looks like Oktoberfest in Munich:

But it's Oktoberfest in Blumenau in the State of Santa Catrarina.

Looks like a stately home in Milan::

But it's a restaurant in São Paulo

Looks like a restaurant in Italy:

But it's another restaurant in São Paulo. (We have lots of seriously good restaurants.)

Looks like somewhere in Germany:

But it's the city of Campos do Jordão, in the State of São Paulo.

Looks like somewhere else in Germany:

But it's in the city of Gramado, in the State of Rio Grande do Sul.

Looks like the Gobi Desert.

But it's a desert in the State of Tocantins..

Looks like Japan:

But it's the Liberdade neighborhood in São Paulo.

Looks like a mosque in the middle-east:

But it's a mosque in Foz do Igauaçu, in the State of Paraná.

Looks like an opera house in France:.

But it's the Municipal Theater in São Paulo.

Looks like snow in Austria:

But it's actually snow in Gramado.

Next time you think of Brazil, don't just think of beaches.

Leighton - Sunday



  1. Your photos are marvelous! As I watched the local NYC news today I was similarly impressed by how so many scenes could take place anywhere on the vast planet - not in this struggling little city. Thelma Straw in Manhattan

  2. Thank you for reposting this amazing set of photos. I was blown away by them the first time, and they made me think of what an incredible country is Brazil.

    Leighton Gage helped to promote the awesomeness of Brazil.

  3. This post reminds me of why I miss Leighton. He brought Brazil to life for me. Just beautiful.

  4. Exactly my point, Lil. True. I now miss Brazil, too.
