Sao Paolo, Brazil

Hmmm, and another official card for today....I wonder how I manage to pick cards like this at random...

It shows the Ponte Estaiada Octávio Frias de Oliveira bridge in São Paulo, which is a cable-stayed bridge over the Pinheiros River, opened in May 2008. The bridge is 138 metres (450 ft) tall, and connects Marginal Pinheiros to Jornalista Roberto Marinho Avenue.
The bridge deck is unusual due to its form, which is similar to an “X”, crossing at the tower.
It is the only bridge in the world that has two curved tracks supported by a single concrete mast.

And the card came from a Depeche Mode fan :D

The left two stamps come from a set of 10 issued in 2002, representing musical instruments, and here is a trumpet...while the other stamp was issued in 2004 in a set of 5 stamps representing paintings by Candido Portinari.

Thanks for following!
