Brazil VI - São Paulo.


We had the chance to go to São Paulo two times that week. Once for a bit of shopping, and twice for a bit more sightseeing and lunch. 

São Paulo. You beautiful city. 

Pigions. 


Sammy at the City hall .. .


Map of Brazil again at the city hall... 




Municipal theatre...








A glimpse of inside the theatre.. too bad we couldn't go in to take pictures .. 
So very Downton Abbey-esque!






We took the train to downtown and got off at Luz station. 




I remember walking up the steps from the platform to the doors leading out of the station as a little girl, and to this day this place strikes me as so beautiful, ethereal. I love the white. I love the high ceilings, each twist, turn, pillar and cranny.  














Green in the middle of São Paulo.















At the city squares you see all kinds of things.. people putting on shows...


In different ways...


A whole day of this.. shopping here ..  shopping there .. 


And as we shopped.. I saw for the first time, x-large sized mannequins ... 


 And after a productive shopping spree, we get our bags, and hop back on the train...



And left the city and sun behind us ...
