Where I stayed

Flag of Brazil  , State of Sao Paulo,
Sunday, June 8, 2008

The AA flight from Miami, Florida to Sao Paulo Brazil took us about 8 hours.  It was supposed to leave at 11:30pm but didn't leave until around 12:40.  The wait wasn't bad because I enjoyed the amenities of business
class seating....personal tv with movies and shows, full size pillow and blanket and unlimited beverages and snacks.  The chairs recline all the way down into a bed.  Nice!  I slept most of the trip except for meal times.
Upon arriving in Sao Paulo, I took an 1 hour and 20 minute drive to Campinas.  I checked into the Royal Palm Residence Hotel but I had to check out the next day.  I found a cheaper hotel with more ammenities at a better
price and in a nicer part of town, the TRYP Campinas.  TRYP is within walking distance to the Convencia Centre
and lots of shops and even a zoo.  It is a nice hotel which I highly recommend. 

I would also recommend learning a few basic portugese words prior to arrival.  You can always get a dictionary and write them down in advance.  People in Campinas are very friendly and happy to help you if you can convey what you are attempting to ask for.
