São Paulo, Brazil
University of São Paulo, Pirassununga Campus.
I got this card as an official from Dani, and the picture shows her university, the largest higher education and research facility in Brazil. Pirassununga is the largest of seven campi and is actually a farm, housing the Faculty of Animal Science and Food Engineering, and the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine and Animal Science. The picture shows the lake in front of the Animal Science and Food Engineering building.
Dani went to great pains to find "real stamps," and the one on the right is a commemorative, sixth in a series of "Exuberant Brazilian Birds," here the blue-naped chlorophonia, a bird common in the forests of southeastern Brazil. The stamp on the left is from the Profession series, showing a seamstress.
