October Days in São Paulo

Last month I've gone on a 5-day trip to São Paulo. It wasn't my first time in the city but even though this was not an exclusively touristic trip I had some free time to explore the city a little more than I had done before. The time was not enough to see everything the city has to offer so I had to choose a few spots. I'll be showcasing photos in chronological order since my take off from Belém (where I live) until the end of this quick trip.

São Paulo has always enchanted me due to its extreme urban and cosmopolitan atmosphere. From the business talks on the sidewalks of Paulista Avenue, to the bohemian feel of the bars at Vila Madalena, to the various languages heard in its popular market streets, to the smells of food coming from restaurants of cuisines from all over the world, to the streetart exposed on its walls, to the rush at the subway, to the 'opposing' architecture styles side by side, to the distances that make you feel its magnitude, to the noisy and crazy traffic at its motorways, to the observance of the most diverse urban tribes along its streets, this city may not be an unanimity but it is truly unique.

I hope you enjoy the photos, I've taken most of the photos with the cellphone camera and a few with an old camera lol

Most of the days were very cloudy and there was drizzle sometimes, it was also colder than the average for spring days. Not the best for the photos but it was just fine for me since I'm already fed up the amazon heat.

Didn´t know that Antonio Banderas get own monument for his movie: The 13th warrior!
I'm just kidding - What I found is a very interesting story about "The Bandeirantes" Portuguese settlers in Brazil and fortune hunters.

They may not have the best fame but they had a big importance in exploring the vastness of Brazil and even expanding our territory.
