Travel Blogs from Sao Paulo
So...Sao Paulo, Brazil. After months of anticipation and planning (OK, we didn't really plan much for this trip other than getting our flights to South America, sorting out a place to stay for the first 2 nights and booking the Machu Picchu hike), we were somewhat...underwhelmed.
