I love this place! I used to visit "25" since I was a kid, with my father. Afterwards I started going alone.
I dig buying some biribas (a very mild type of firecracker that snaps once thrown onto the floor), Playmobil, some random stuff, and there's always something there.
There was a time when I made lots of music with toys and that was the place where I shopped for props.
Generally I go walking there and back. It's a very pleasant walk. But sometimes I take the electric bus, which is also great - good for me because I get to bypass traffic, and good for the city since it preserves the environment by running on electricity - a clean energy.
I bring many friends to have that experience with me. We go walking and discovering new things. Once I took a friend there and he was just overwhelmed! He's from São Paulo, but that was his first time at 25 and he couldn't believe the madness! It was too much for him to bear.
Today the commerce there is pretty much under control, but at that time there was much more people selling stuff in the street, it was crazy as hell. You walked out of there with your head buzzing.
When I'm strolling about the street I make a lot of recordings, I shoot videos and tape the sound of people going by - I enjoy that mess, but you gotta be in the right state of mind to visit 25 de março.
