The Rodovia dos Imigrantes (Immigrant’s Highway) inaugurated
in 1974 is an engineering feat. The highway connects the city of
São Paulo to the Atlantic coast It was built above the lush tropical
forests. For just a short stretch of 58.5 km it has 44 viaducts,
7 ‘high strutting’ bridges and 11, some extremely long tunnels

A shadorma comprises six non-rhyming lines
and a syllable pattern of  3-5-3-3-7-5.
