Friday afternoon in SP

So today I went back downtown to Praca de Republica and checked out the Edificio Italia, a forty something story building with a fancy restaurant and free observation deck on the top. Unlike Santander, this one doesn’t check for id.

Looking south. I’m staying somewhere in the mess of buildings beyond the big antennas on the right half of the frame.



Northside. The green area is Praca de Republica.

I walked back to the hostel from downtown instead of taking the subway, which took about an hour and a half. The transition between old downtown, Bela Vista, hipster land on Rue Augusta north of Paulista, Jardins, and Vila Madalena is pretty interesting on foot.

Back in Pinheiros, I saw this outstanding Honda Motorcycle parked in front of this gallery a few blocks from the hostel.

If I spoke Portuguese I’d probably move here for a while.
