Sao Paulo

Sao Paulo

Things we love:

It looks a bit like New York City
The shopping is better than Rio
It has the highest number of Helicopters in a city. In 2008 there were 462 private choppers and 70,000 flights. Chop Chop..
It has the biggest population of Japanese outside of Japan aka mega sushi and sake
They say more than 1 million pizza are eaten a day in Sao Paulo, that’s 732 slices a min.
The night life is awesome

Things we wish we’d known:

All banks all over the city close at 10pm apart from a few on Av paulista- you can only get 100 Real out (about 30 quid).
The traffic is horrendous
Car jacking is a big fashion here, many locals have bullet proof cars.
The Population is 11.3 million
It can be very dangerous
