Chuck and I arrived in Sao Paulo on Tuesday. Though our flight arrived early (4:15pm), the ride from the airport took a long time. Sao Paulo is famous for traffic...sorry LA...I think they have you beat.
We met with our program coordinator, Luciano. He brought us to a restaurant in the city called Figueira. It is the most unusual restaurant I have seen. It has a massive tree growing in the middle! The tree is 130 years old, 50 meters high and 8 meters wide. We tried some local breads, meats and wines. We had a wonderul evening.
