A city of contrasts:
Huge and chaotic. Modern glass facades and people pulling carts of their belongings behind them. Wealthy families living in secure apartments high above the homeless defecating in the streets. Cosmopolitan and rich in culture, coming alive late in the night.
Big thanks to Caio and Eduardo for their extremely kind hospitality.
Sightseeing in São Paulo
The Banespa building , São Paulo's Empire State
Catedral da Se, in the centre of the city.
Mercado Contoreira/municipal, well known locally for the huge sandwiches that you can get in the food hall.
Avenida Paulista, the cosmopolitan heart of São Paulo. Musea de Arte de São Paulo and Parque do Ibirapuera.
Instituto Butantan reptile house
The Week nightclub, just massive... and with a pool.
Pinacoteca museum and the adjacent Parque Luz where you can find many prostitutes.
