Coffee, the drink of Brazil. On a lovely Saturday after failing to sign up to a gym close to our apartment we decided to make a day out of it. Starting with a lovely cup of coffee!

 

Electric Lines and Skyscrapers. The motif of Sao Paulo, or maybe I should say Perdizes. Looking at Sao Paulo from my academic perspective, is very engaging. This is a city that is pushing itself to be considered a global city and there are issues that are still present in the city but doesn’t every global city have one? These are the questions that Sao Paulo has posed me. Also this building reminds me of Pulp Fiction, I do not know why, but it does.

 

Look up in the sky! It’s a bird…..It’s a plane…..It’s not Superman…..but seriously what is that? Will we ever know? Great scenery though, brought to you by Sao Paulo.

 

“I wonder if they call it soccer here?” They do, and it is arguably the best in Brazil. It’s really important to take the time to understand the cultural factors that have shaped Brazil for centuries.

 

Thank you to Dontae for making our travel to Floripa (which is an island south of Sao Paulo) a truly enjoyable experience that I shall not forget anytime soon.

 

Local pride in Floripa // Not In My Back Yard –ism

 

Brazilian cowboys.

 

Find somewhere in a new city that makes you feel comfortable.

 

At times, I am in awe of the beauty that Sao Paulo attains in its intricate balance between nature and building structures or even the streetscape.

 

Lights, Camera, Get those hands up! On Avenida Paulista, one of the major streets in Sao Paulo we decided to take a break from crossing the street to enjoy the fact that we are studying abroad!
