Flag of Brazil  , State of Sao Paulo,
Wednesday, December 22, 2010

That São Paulo is the largest city in the southern hemisphere becomes clear when you arrive to the city and don't see anything but skyscrapers for more than an hour before reaching the centre. São Paulo appeared very modern to me, but apparently Switzerland and Ethiopia lie less than 15 minutes away from each other here. And because the Paulista that I met earlier in La Paz was out of town for the holidays, I found out what the hotel prices are in São Paulo's Switzerland.

I planned on staying no more than one or two nights in this giant city and to escape to the coast for a more idyllic Christmas, but with all the outgoing buses being full, São Paulo will have to do for Christmas.

Feliz Natal!
