Santos and the tramway

The first and the second pictures were taken by my daughter B. It is Santos, a city in the state of São Paulo, Brazil.

You can see Morro Santa Terezinha Hill on the background.

The sea on the background.

This is my picture of Ana Costa Ave. 

A sightseeing tour by tramway downtown. 



This tramway does not run anymore,  but you can still see it on the square as a tourist attraction and take a picture with the dummy on the door.



I do love a trip on the tramway to see the historical points downtown.
