Very basic hotel on border of cleanliness but all staff were very helpful and a short walk to main city area. Good wifi in comfotable lobby but not good in room. Run down but good value for money.

That evening, after another deluge and a melt in your mouth pizza, we headed out to a street party near to the one we'd headed to the night before with some people we'd met on the bus to Sao Paulo, some Paulistanos they'd met, ...
... traffic chaos and overflowed public transportation system. I guess it did not help that most of the days I was there it was raining heavily and certainly did not contribute to a positive experience as it limited my mobility.

It was hot and raining a lot and even hotter when not raining!
The transportation system ...
