THANK YOU GUYS FOR YOUR COMMENTS! It's 4:00 AM here in Montreal, Canada, I'm pretty tired but can't get some sleep. I'm a little lazy to answer all the comments but I'd like to thank you all for your comments, I appreciate it a lot! :thumb: As an apology for not answering, here's a small update!

Prefeitura de Goiana

Estado de Picuí

The Prefecture of Goiana is the largest city and the seat of the government of the State of Picuí, the smallest state in San Theodoros. That region is located along the border with Brazil, making it the second Portuguese-speaking enclave in San Theodoros, after the Islands of Trinidad and Cayo Coco.

The state is widely known in San Theodoros for its microclimate and its beautiful pink and purple Jacaranda trees. During the dry season, from May to October, the lack of rain makes the levels of the local rivers go down and exposes tens of kilometers of beautiful sandy beaches. Those beaches, along with the natural hot water wells, are a significant tourist attraction and San Theodorans massively come to populate the city of Goiana during the weekends, national holidays or for a larger period of time. The city has today a permanent population of 41,000 inhabitants, but this number goes up to 500,000 people during the peak tourism season. This situation forced the local government to massively build hotels, mansions and condominiums in order to accommodate the tourists as well as a massive BRT (Bus Rapid Transit) System.

Surrounded by plateaus, verticalization was a necessity and Goiana is now considered one of the densest cities in Latin America, with a significant number of high rises per capita.The city hosts major national events such as the Goiana Country Show, a national festival of Country/Sertanejo music, a genre of Brazilian origin that won the hearts of most San Theodorans, including El Presidente!

Amazing! Simply Amazing!

 

The trees, the name, the BRT and the references to Sertanejo music is a little homage to my beloved Goiânia ? :bunny:
