Postcard from Brazil no. 2

A card showing the Parque de Ibirapuera in São Paulo (which is comparable in its importance to the Central Park in New York City). The single stamp of RS 1, issued on 07/02/2009 in 1,020,000 copies, is dedicated to the Brazilian archbishop and "pastor of peace" Dom Helder Camara (1909 - 1999). Apart from his portrait the stamp shows a silhouette of Instituto Dom Helder Camara in Recife. Thank you Maria, from Varginha, Minas Gerais.
