Ibirapuera Park
Walking into a 20-million person city is little intimidating but with our good friend and resident Paulista, Marcelo, as our guide, we saw the sweeter side of South America’s biggest metropolis. With a wild abundance of restaurants (12,500), bars (15,000) museums (110), and the craziest soccer scene, we had our hands full with good times (see slideshow below) but the day that sums up Sao Paolo culture and beauty was our day in Ibirapuera Park (click here for full post on SeeingDesign.)

      we thought the same thing, it wasn’t high on our list either, but with Marcelo there we decided to visit, and we were SO happy we did. it surprised us at every turn. granted it was expensive, but the culture and the food was amazing. and the people were SO nice.

      yeah Sao Paulo gets a bad wrap (is it rap, or wrap?)….and to be perfectly honest the city is a hub of commerce and not all about the beauty (like Rio)….but if you find it on your travel itinerary you will not be disappointed….dig in :)

    I had the pleasure to receive this lovely couple at the Football Museum. I see now how fantastic was this journey. You, guys, did something that most part of the brazilian citizens will never be able to: visit so many different parts of the country. Congratulations! This website is awsome!
