Introduction

Sao Paulo is a huge city of 20 million and is one of the richest cities in the southern hemisphere. The prices reflected it too! We were out of the Argentinas, the Bolivias and the Perus and were back to paying full price for things…sometimes even more than we would pay in Sydney!

It's a pretty city though with lots to do and see, many different suburbs to explore. We only had a couple of days but we seemed to get lots done.

Our friend Alex came to meet us there & will travel with us for a little while which will be nice to spend some time with him. Neil has a boy to talk football with!


Highlights

Visiting the different suburbs

We spent a lot of time walking around and taking the train between the various different suburbs.  One of them was a popular area for art and street art, one was the main CBD with lots of old buildings, another area was for nightlife etc etc

Observatory Building

This was a building 35 storeys high and we were able to go right up to the top to the viewing point. The views were amazing and it’s really not until you get up to a height like this that you realise just how big this city is!

Football Museum

This was a museum attached to the side of a football stadium and was really modern technology with lots of graphics explaining the history of football in Brazil.


Food & Drink

Favourite Local Dish: Mortadella Sandwich – The biggest fattest meat sandwich ever

New Tastes: Mortadella Sandwich & Black Dog (A hotdog!)

Hotel Paulista - $57 a night for a room with 3 beds, really nice brekkie included on the rooftop.
