We landed in Sao Paolo ahead of schedule after a beautiful flight over Chile’s mountains. We took an Uber to our hotel, and had an early night.
The next morning, we walked the 15 minutes to Praca da Republica, where the hop on hop off bus starts. We arrived early, and found a market was being set up right in front of the bus stop. They sold all kinds of stuff, from knits, to paintings, semiprecious stones, leather goods and souvenirs.
We found a separate section of the market with food stalls. We had to try the Brazilian pastel. There’s all types of fillings, and they are delicious!
Then it was time for the bus tour. As it was Sunday, the Av. Paulista was closed off, so we didn’t see all the highlights. We decided we’d walk to the street after the tour ourselves.
As it was a Sunday, the roads were relatively empty, meaning that we could drive the route much quicker than expected.
