Where I stayed
We arrived at the bus station in Paraty at 9am to get our tickets for the 9.40am bus, but there was only one seat left on that one so we had to get tickets for the 1:40pm bus. A lot of time to kill to wait but we managed it, guess we better get used to waiting around for buses! Arrived safely in Sao Paulo about half 7 and it was dark but we managed to find our way to the hostel. With John being a metro enthusiast he was in his element figuring out the metros to get.
We only spent the one day exploring Sao Paulo. The first area we went to was very dodgy, apart from a lot of wedding dress shops there was nothing much else to see so we got back on the metro and headed for Sé
Supermarkets are hard to come by in Sao Paulo as we discovered! Believe us, we tried to hunt out our dinner as we explored Vila Madelana and the areas nearby. Eventually that evening we found one after a lot of walking! And our homemade dinner, courtesy of John (amazing chef) was definitely well deserved that night. Next stop - Curitiba!
