I was so excited about going to the southern hemisphere! The day I left USA, temperature in Chicago was like 5'C (40'F). The pilot was so friendly in the aircraft and he said "You're gonna get rid of those jackets when you arrive Brazil. So, be happy! :)" ...
He was right, when I arrived Sao Paulo and went out from the airport building, I felt the temperature. It was 32'C (89'F)!!! And my friends told me it was the end of the spring, not even summer. OMG!
Sao Paulo is not only the largest city of Brazil, but also the southern hemisphere's with its population around 18 million people. It's the cultural and financial center of the country. You can find a lot of activities in this city. If you like to visit museum, you need to go to the Football Museum first.
Also if you are interested in modern arts, you need to go MASP. It's on Paulista Avenue. There are also Portuguese Language Museum an another art museum in Ibirapuera Park.
Sao Paulo's nightlife is pretty tempting. So many bars and night clubs according to your taste of music and entertainment.
Paulista Avenue is the financial center of the city, and it's a good place to walk, see the environment, have a cup of coffee or very delicious Braziilian juices. You can do shopping, buy some souvenirs etc. from here. Also, there is a very beautiful park called "Trianon Park". It's in the middle of the city but looks wild. You must see it!
