A small detail, that is worth telling because I always find interesting the judgment of the people in relation to the things I do. If they find it beautiful or ugly. Regarding this bus station, there is an anecdote that enchanted me. The bus enters the Station and people descend directly on the platform, and a lady who was going to Jaú told me that, when the bus entered the station, the driver said: “Will you get off the bus, madam?” And she: “No, I’m going to Jaú.” “But we’re in Jaú.” “Of course not, young man, I know Jaú, and there are no such things there.” Artigas, 1981.
