#51 Trying to get to sleep at night


Despite the post below on Facebook in February and several attempts to complain to the city council via their web site and call centre, plus calls to the military and civil police, the bar behind our flat still seems to be able to play its music so loud that our windows actually vibrate and my daughter cries at night because she is unable to sleep.

The Sao Paulo mayor posted a hilarious video to Facebook in February in which he appears to close a bar which was playing music too loud with very little protest from the owner.

Inspired by this video we used the portal on the council website to protest about the bar but as the year progressed, nothing has happened despite more messages, phone calls, complaints and calls to the police.

Recently when complaining to the council that nothing had been done they suggested I call the military police. The military police hung up on me, as did the mayors office when I attempted later to complain to them. The Civil Police did not hang up but also did nothing to stop the sound.

Any ideas anyone?
