This is the location from where I took the photo for my Nike Air Max Skyline "Max Orange".
The building in the background is the "Flatiron Building aka Fuller building" located on Broadway and 23rd street. This is considered to be the first skyscraper (one of the first buildings to also use a steel skeleton) ever built originally in 1902 and designed by Daniel Burnham. To me, It looks like a triangle expanding down. Pretty cool architecture.
Gabriel has been in Australia for the past two and a half years, but he's going back to Brazil later this year.
He came over from Rio de Janeiro to surf and visit his best mate who is now married and settled here.
Gabriel tells me he has recently broken up with his 'ex missus' after two and a half years together, but says it's a good thing because it made him realise he has to go back home.
The 22 year old's family didn't want him to come out to Australia.
He says his family stopped giving him money and things like that because they didn't want him to leave home.
Gabriel really loves Australia and describes it as a great country with cool people, good economy and great infrastructure, as well as everything else.
He says the main difference between the Gold Coast and Rio is the culture, but he says the weather is pretty much the same.
"It's a big, big difference," he says.
Gabriel has spent his time in Australia living along the coasts of the Gold Coast.
