Sao Paulo

Sao Paulo from Mariott on May 14, 2009 

See video of the Sao Paulo vista at this link.  

Sao Paulo is the biggest city in Brazil and the third largest metropolitan area in the world.   It is a nice place to visit for short time, but I would not like to live in this mega-city.    I have to say that it has improved a lot since I was last here.  The air is less polluted and there are some attractive buildings, but it still is a paradise for lovers of concrete and cinderblock.

We are staying in the Marriott Renaissance in the Jardim section of town.    I found some pretty places including a park that features a small part of the Atlantic forest in the middle of the city.

We had some very good meetings with technology leaders.   Brazil is an exciting place for new technologies will be or already is a leader in social community systems.   I will write some general comments about what I learned later.  Suffice to say that our Brazilian friends have done impressive things and will be major players in the new media.
