Week 18
Mar 3rd

Feeling relaxed and refreshed after my few days on Ilha Grande it was time to push on for the Iquazu falls on the border of Brazil and Argentina. Not before stopping over for a few hours on Tueasday at Sao Paulo station waiting for the next bus. The night journey did drain a little bit from me but I still mustered up the will to go into Sao Paulo centre to have a walk around for a few hours. I was told it wasn`t much to look at and the sceptics were right, in my opinion, I wasn`t impressed. I did see a couple of nice buildings and one nice street though that reminded me of New York. The buildings designer was inspired by the Empire State Building and the similarities were striking. The rest of the street looked a little like a street from Manhatten too. I didn`t see much else inspiring in two hours walking around, though to be fair, I can`t slag it off too much as it is a massive city (the biggest in the southern hemisphere - 11 or 22 million people depending where you decide to draw the line) and two hours walking doesn`t get you very far, particulary if it is generally in circles. I reckon the locals got more amusement out of me in my beachwear during rush hour!
