We all know that the very best people read the AJ, but it's nice to have that confirmed on the other side of the world. So the AJ team were delighted when a request filtered through for extra copies of the special issue on Oscar Niemeyer, which focused on the restoration of the Alvorada presidential palace.

Who is so keen to receive these copies? Why, none other than president Lula da Silva, current tenant of the Alvorada, and Brazilian culture secretary and musician Gilberto Gil.
