Sao Paulo's downtown area is really awesome, been there only twice, but it fascinates me every time I see it.

Great photos. I was in the old downtown SP in 2004 and really liked it. I can't say the same about the new downtown around Avenida Paulista.

Really interesting. Looks like a mixture of Asian, European and US urban styles...
