Big Ears in Brazil

Big ears in Brazil are one more means of communication for anyone on the streets. No, we are not talking about the cauliflower eared athletes in academies, streets and on the beaches… Named after the shape of the covers surrounding the public telephones, “ORELHOES” (plural for “ORELHAO”) are spread throughout most of the cities and even in rural areas. Big Ears are easy to use and can come in handy if you do not have a local phone or in an emergency. Who knows, you could be one of those all night partiers loose on the streets, who wakes up without shoes or a cell phone!
