So Paulo: Final Destination

After six days in Rio I took my final bus journey, a moment of mixed emotions, to So Paulo. It was a six hour trip, a breeze after my last bus voyage.

I expected nothing from Sa Paulo. If anything I anticipated a huge, dirty, smelly city. It certainly is huge, there are almost 11 million inhabitants. However, smelly and dirty it was not. At least not all of it. I found So Paulo to be ...

... a staple diet here. Very yummy and fully endorsed by Sechaba, my very own nutritionist aka hubby. Everyday we feature the beans in our meals. Can't wait to discover more local food and to make friends with locals. Language is a big barrier. We have absolutely no plans for the rest of our time here. My guess is beach, sleep & read.

A Beautiful Mess

Looking out of the window of our night bus as dawn breaks we get a glimpse of Rio's (in)famous favelas coming into the city. Thousands of shacks built crudely on top of each other that stretch for miles into the hills. We hear of recent reports of police 'death squads' who are very liberal with their bullets in order to cleanse the areas of drug lords before the World Cup. Apparently this is a practice common in Brazil since the 1970's and when we enquire to tour the favelas with a guide ...
