Today I visited Ribeirao Preto, a city about 1 hour north of Araraquara, with an other IAESTE student. Its nickname is the 'Brazilian California', because of its wealth and technical industries.
It is also the city that the french team stayed in during the world cup, so french flags were everywhere!
I only explored downtown but from the bus saw some of the rest of the city. The outskirts are a lot more like California than the center is; the was a huge Carefour and lots ...
... Watching great players like Messi, Van Persie and Robben live in a semi final of a World Cup is just unbelievable! You can't get much better than that except for of course the final between Germany and Argentina. The shoutout was on the side we were sitting which was good.

TravelPod Member ReviewsPousada Zilah Sao Paulo
Friendly staff, free wifi, beds not that comfy but food in the restaurant (both the free breakfast and the lunch/dinner you can buy) is really really fantastic. The area is nice and it's only ten minutes (sadly uphill) to Av. Paulista.
