One don't have to be either Chilean, Argentinian or Mexican to dislike SP guys.
Am Mexican & I like it, am planing to move there for a couple years, so I can learn Portuguese.
And as for the American gentleman, I think is very valid for him to express his point of view and the way he sees Sao Paulo.
Please guys let's enjoy the thread and don't take it too personal
Life is just too short to spend it getting upset.

Cool photos, I really like this type of stuff as you can probably tell if you ever look at my photo thread. People shots can show you the soul of a city.

I can see why the title is controvertial, it is practically begging for an argument from people in other cosmopolitan cities in Latin America.

amazing pics tchello, what a great walking view of Paulista Avenue you are showing us..
but, seriously, I just can't get why brazilian forumers keep using this type of names in the threads.. it sounds just bizarre.. there's no need for that.. even if SP is the most cosmopolitan city, which I cannot tell you cause I've never been in Mex.City or Caracas or Bogotá, we don't need this kind of lettering.. it sounds arrogant..

Thank you for the comments but I really don´t understand why some people take too seriously a personal opinion...

The title reflects not only a personal opinion, but reality. I am not a diplomat speaking at the United Nations convention, and I'm not trying to make anyone change their opinions about São Paulo.

I respect everyone who likes and who dislikes the city but when I talk about cosmopolitan, I mean that Sao Paulo is the city that received most diverse immigrants. It is the mix of immigrants so different that I call cosmopolitan.

likewise as many forumers just look at photos or videos of Sao Paulo and make their critical views I dont need to travel to Santiago, Buenos Aires or Mexico City to realize that these cities haven´t a population so ethnically diverse as São Paulo.

Just look at the face of population


Where are black people in Buenos Aires? Where are japaneses in Mexico? Where are thousands of lebaneses in Santiago?

That's what I'm talking about...

Arrogance to me is not respect a personal opinion and take it as something personal making a critical offensive to the city of Sao Paulo because of the personal opinion written by a forumer.

I've been in SP and I can say that it's truly the most cospolitan city in LA. The big quantity of ethnic groups and nationalities you can find there is amazing, and the city is very stylish, you can find a lot of art, design, fashion stuff, all around. I really lov SP. In addition, people is usually good looking and very nice, nicer than in other big cities, I means, it's not that raw to be that big, I like that.
Very nice photos, keep posting.

LUV sampa

thanks

I agree. Brazilian women have nice big bundas and big hips. SP is ugly, but its curvaceous women are not.

GREAT PICS.BUT TOO BE HONEST I ONLY SEE A FEW ASIAN,BLACKS AND BRASILIANS FACES,I DON'T SEE MIXED FACES FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD(COMPARE TO NEW YORK OR LONDON STREETS FOR EX.)THAT ALONE DOES NOT MAKE SP A COSMOPOLITAN CITY.
TO ME RIO DE JANEIRO IS FAR MORE COSMOPOLITAN LIKE BUENOS AIRES A TRUE INTERNACIONAL AND DIVERSE MEGACITY.TAKE A B.A.PHONE BOOK AND LOOK FOR LAST NAMES.
BUT LETS PUT IT THIS WAY:SAO PAULO=TOKYO,RIO=SAN FRANSISCO/HONK KONG AND
BUENOS AIRES=PARIS/MADRID/BERLIN WITH A TOUCH OF NEW YORK IN ONE.
A COSMOPOLITAN CITY IS NOT JUST FACES IS ALSO A WAY OF LIFE!

I am not comparing Sao Paulo with NY or London. Where you saw that?

What do you mean with brazilian faces? Can you describe a brazilian face for us?

Maybe in these pics you cannot find many asians as you would like to see, but for your information SP has the biggest japanese community outside japan. Almost a million! 250 thousands coreans, 130 thousands chineses living here.

Tchello, eu admiro a paciência que você tem pra tentar argumentar com gente ignorante. Dizer que Buenos Aires tem mais diversidade étnica do que SP é um estupro ao bom senso. Passei 4 dias lá andando pelas ruas, os únicos negros e asiáticos que eu vi eram turistas, por exemplo. Aliás, não entendo a sisma que as pessoas tem com SP. Parece que não é permitido se destacar em nada, logo já vem alguém contestando.
