We had a mad rush through Brazil’s capital when we visited it. We arrived in the morning and left in the evening. It’s one of those cities built in the heyday of the 20th century when petrol and the private motorcar was king, long before climate change was in the news. As such we didn’t like it too much as there were wide open spaces that were not very friendly for a city where pedestrians, cyclists and public transport should be the norm. One highlight is this church. The Dom Bosco church is a non conventional but beautiful church. It is a cube of concrete and stained glass windows but luckily more of the latter. The four sides are occupied by tall long stained glass window. Nearly all of them are blue with white bits meant to represent the stars in the night sky. In each corner however there is a glass panel where the blue is replaced by the shades of pink/mauve and these represent the early morning. In the day you can admire these glass windows from inside the church but in the evening if there is a service you can enjoy it from outside as the enormous “lamp” provides enough light.
