Soaking Up Art and Architecture in São Paulo

SaoPaulo

I arrived in São Paulo wide-eyed and ready to explore the city that would act as both a layover and launch point throughout the rest of my time in Brazil. As the largest city in the country (and the fifth largest city in the world!), São Paulo can be a tad overwhelming. I knew I […]
