Brazilian creativity is legendary, fresh ideas and innovations just seem to flow with the ease of samba on a sunny day. So you think Brazilians would speak on ordinary public phones? Please. Brazilian phone booths are called orelhao (big ear) because of the function and rounded shape but they hardly resemble anything close to a boring, old phone.
In Bahia, I was excited to see phone booths looking like big, green apples but that wasn't all.
Some perched on corners in the form of gigantic swans.
Others beckoned with the bright petals of the sunflower.
Or the imposing beauty of the rose.
And this duck character, I can't explain who he is, probably the cooler, more stylish (check out the carefully coordinated hat) cousin of Daffy.
