AEROPORTO DE CONGONHAS!
CONGONHAS AIRPORT!

I was there, waiting for my flight from SO PAULO/SP (The capital city of the State of So Paulo) to GOINIA/GO (The capital city of the State of Gois), at the domestic airport in the city of So Paulo: CONGONHAS.
It was the first airport I'd ever visited in my whole life, back in 1969, when I was four y.o., and my uncle Joo took us there! I remember I loved everything, but was afraid of the noise of the airplanes!
To use it as a departing place, now that was the second time, because the first one was in january this year, when I flew to Porto Alegre/RS (yes, it took me a long, long time to do that since 1969).
Although I have good memories of it and the fact that's been renovated several times, still, it has an old fashion appearance and it's much smaller than the International Airport in Guarulhos (GRU).
It's the busiest domestic aiport in Brazil and it's located in the middle of the city!

A curiosity: the pavement has the SHAPE OF THE STATE OF SO PAULO !
