Sao Paulo, Brazil

Take a chopper to the street art, why not?!

sunny 90 °F

Sao Paulo is in the top 10 most expensive cities in the world to live in, and from our new friend Gustavo’s balcony we could watch people FLYING to a nearby meeting in their helicopters… it was kinda crazy. It gave us a whole new perspective on the term ‘concrete jungle’ … you could seriously see high rises for miles and miles!

We met up with Celso, a long lost family friend and he graciously showed us around his city. He guided us through some amazing alley ways including Beco do Batman y Aprendiz filled with ‘Arte Urbana’ and showed us the hot spots of Vila Madalena.

As most people know, Brazilians are crazy about their futbol and we can’t imagine how crazy Brazil is going to get in 2014 for World Cup… but what we didn’t know was how obsessed Brazilians are with farofa (a cassava root flour that resembles really stale bread crumbs)! For one meal, we were given about two cups worth of the stuff to go with a few slices of meat, and they even have a sweet version for ice cream! If we had to choose between anything topped with farofa or an enormous Mortadella sandwich that contains a year’s worth of bologna, we’d definitely choose the bologna.

Love the sandwiches for breakfast! And I will always take a pass on farofa... There's a good Place in Berkeley where you can find farofa...

I'm brazilian and I can say that you must try our barbecue! You're gonna love it. Try to go in Fogo de Chão (São Paulo) or Porcão (in Rio)...
