Praça da Sé - Sé, São Paulo - SP, 01001-000, Brazil
Once in awhile, there are moments while traveling when I know I am in the right place at the right time. One of these moments was when I walked into Catedral da Sé de São Paulo. The grandeur of the cathedral was impressive in its own right, but I...

R. Fradique Coutinho, 914 - Vila Madalena, São Paulo - SP, 05416-001, Brazil
One of the wonderful things I found in São Paulo was a culture of sustainability that appeared to be more forward-thinking than many other cities around the world. Meeting with friends at the Ekoa Café, I listened to several of them discuss their...

R. Graúna, 137 - Moema, São Paulo - SP, 04514-000, Brazil
Brazilian beer is, to put it charitably, undistinguished. Which may be why Brazilians are obsessed with the intricacies of properly pouring draft beer. It is served ice cold and with a sizable, perfect head. A draft beer is called a chopp, and a...

Viaduto Nove de Julho, 193 - Centro Histórico de São Paulo, São Paulo - SP, 01050-060, Brazil
Estadao is situated in downtown Sao Paulo. They serve up an incredibly delicious roast pork sandwich: crisp skin on the outside, succulent meat on the inside, all piled onto a fresh-baked roll. A newspaper used to be headquartered nearby and so...

This beautiful Lady is all about outdoors. With its hills, cascades, fauna and exuberant flora, Rio will always be a motherly paradise for hikers, climbers, cyclists, runners, surfers, paddlers and dancers alike. Rio is so magical that she even...

Praça Benedito Calixto - Pinheiros, São Paulo - SP, Brazil
Anyone who has been to Brazil knows that the country has fantastic open-air markets, known as "feiras" in Portuguese. They often feature a combination of handicrafts, antiques, live music, dancing, and street food. The market on Saturdays at Praça...

Liberdade, São Paulo - State of São Paulo, Brazil
This particular piece of street art in the Liberdade neighborhood of Sao Paulo in Brazil perfectly describes how much Japanese influence the city has. I found this across the street from the community Japanese garden.

R. Cantareira, 306 - Centro, São Paulo - SP, 01103-200, Brazil
Go to the Mercado Municipal in Sao Paulo for all your gourmet needs. The market has everything from fresh vegetables to homemade candies. I decided to go for a mortadella sandwich from Bar do Mane. The locals seem to have a soft-spot for the...

After hearing so much about the huge Municipal Market in downtown Sao Paulo, I was excited to visit a slightly smaller version in Lapa, one of Sao Paulo's central districts. I wanted to see not just the array of food but also Brazilians going...

As a lover of architecture, visiting Edificio Copan in the center of São Paulo was high on my list during my last visit to this lively city. However, what really struck me while standing outside Copan was this fun street art behind us. It seems to...

Av. Paulista, 1578 - Bela Vista, São Paulo - SP, 01310-200, Brazil
I love to travel, but something I rarely admit is that I'm not very adventurous when it comes to food on the road. I love to try local specialties but don't eat much meat or heavy, fried food. As a result, it took me a while to get into street...

R. Barão de Capanema, 549 - Jardim Paulista, São Paulo - SP, 01411-001, Brazil
São Paulo’s D.O.M. is currently rated sixth in the World’s 50 Best ranking, but to me it is simply the restaurant where I take every visiting non-Brazilian for a guaranteed reaction: “What just hit us?!” The more confident that chef–owner Alex...

Rua Tupi, 979 - Higienópolis, São Paulo - SP, 01233-000, Brazil
“What I like the most at this steakhouse is its winter garden, which feels like a leafy backyard. The ojo de bife is delicious, but, because I tend to be on a perennial diet, I usually order the fraldinha, a Brazilian cut of beef that is quite...

“Mere steps away from one of Higienópolis’s most iconic buildings, Edificio Cinderela, [a modernist marble condominium with columns in bright pink tile] this is a regular morning stop for me. I usually order a ham and cheese croissant. It’s one of...

Vila Madalena, São Paulo - State of São Paulo, 03178-200, Brazil
Sao Paulo is a massive, business hub of South America and not the greatest place to visit. It's full of great food, but not much in the way of culture or beauty. But there is a funky oasis in the middle of this skyrise city in the artsy...
