São Paulo Confidential: What we discovered in Brazil's biggest city

In this episode: We learn the meaning of the word "favela" and a few other things we're glad to know. (Recorded 2/3/24 in São Paulo)

No transcript...

Oi from São Paulo! We survived our first few days in Brazil’s biggest city. You were probably wondering if we would after last week’s podcast.

Before I tell you what happened, here’s our question of the week: If you didn’t have the passport you did, which one would you want? Please leave your answer in the comments.

We wandered into all kinds of neighborhoods in the city before finding our way back to our apartment yesterday. Some of them were not so safe. I’ll explain what happened (and how we got through it) in this week’s podcast.

A fern-covered tree in Parque Ibirapuera, São Paulo’s version of Central Park. The park is full of people exercising on a Saturday morning, but once you get off the beaten path, it’s quiet and it feels almost remote. I have a feeling we’ll be coming back here.

You know what they say? They've got an awful lot of coffee in Brazil. This is the coffee aisle in our local supermarket. We couldn’t decide which one to get. I think we’re going to do a coffee shop tour while we’re here. They take their coffee very seriously in São Paulo.

By the way, if you’ve ever been to Brazil, we’d love to get your recommendations for places to visit and feature in an upcoming podcast.

Oh, and don’t forget this week’s question: Which passport do you covet?
