Several of us foreign teachers went with a Brazilian friend today to the home of a seamstress so that we could be measured for Oktoberfest costumes. The entire group of Brazilian and foreign friends will attend the festival in costume. There is a double motivation - firstly, because it's more fun to be silly in matching costumes, and secondly, because the admission is half price for those in costume for the ten day festival.
The seamstress lives near UNISC, the local university. It was about a twenty or thirty minute walk and nice to see some other areas. Of course I took a few photos along the way. Here is a mailbox which is quite common here but to my foreign eye very lovely.
The obligatory garden photo for today is a picture of a rosebush as seen through the block glass window.
