    Sao Paolo

    November 13, 2021 in Brazil ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    От Сан Пауло пока не восторге. Очень много бомжей и какие-то разбитые дороги. Были на муниципальном рынке, там продают еду и кафешки тут же. Я не сфоткала. Пиво приносят сразу же не спрашивая, и когда оно ещё не закончилось, уже новый стакан подбегает официант и ставит. Рынок битком забит, все столы заняты.Read more

    Монастырь Сан-Бенту. Закрыт и видимо там учат монахов.

    Да, Бразилия очень контрастная страна и небезопасная. Это конечно не Перу. Я даже не знаю что там интересного кроме знаменитых пляжей Рио Де Жанейро и гигантского монумента Христу.

    A casa do porco

    November 15, 2021 in Brazil ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Ресторан получивший мишлоновскую звезду. Я обычно не фотаю еду, но тут не удержалась. Ужин из 9 блюд. Час в очереди, и 3 часа принимания пищи. В Бразилии интересно то, что очередь ждут на улице и там же организованы counters или столики для закусок и алкоголя. Пока ждут очередь уже начинают выпивать.Read more

    А ценник какой?

    Nadia F

    ценник для такого уровня вообще супер. 185 реал за 9 course meal (это около 33$), напитки отдельно.

    Dinner in Sao Paulo

    November 18, 2021 in Brazil ⋅ 🌧 21 °C

    So I am here at Hotel Uno Cinco Cinco, and relaxing today, its been raining all day anyway. So I finally start to get hungry, so ventured out to see what was on the street here close. Found a nice Italian restaurant (I have found no matter what the language is in the country you are at, you can always easily order Italian).

    Well, I sit down, and the gentlemen comes over and takes my order . . . Spaghetti Bolognaise (it's fairly quick to make, and I'm hungry), he nods . . . then I order the local drink, a caipirinha. So off he goes, and makes my drink. Very tasty. 15 minutes go by, so I ordered another one. Another 15 minutes go by, I am starting to wonder what was taking so long. Anyway, about 45 minutes have gone by, I have ordered my third drink, and finally I ask if the food is coming. He looks at me quizzically, and then I see the light bulb go off over his head . . . he scurries back to the kitchen. Less than 10 minutes later, he comes back sheepishly, and I have a hot steaming plate of spaghetti in front of me. He forgot to take my order to the kitchen . . . worst part about that was, I was the ONLY person in the joint. Hahahahaha, what a day. Dinner was great by the way . . . yum.

    Cold and cloudy but a fun day

    September 4, 2019 in Brazil ⋅ ☁️ 14 °C

    Katy arrived this morning, just as we were going into a late breakfast. Once she was all settled, we headed out to walk for several hours, back to our old apartment. This time the “zelador” (caretaker) was there and let us in to walk around a bit. From there, through the fancy neighborhood called the Jardins (gardens). The biggest difference I noticed from 30 years ago was that all the jagged glass that used to be on the top of the 20’ walls had been replaced with electronic alarm systems. A slightly better aesthetic. On the way to the lunch place, we got within a few feet of a Lamborghini, the closest I will probably ever get, even though there was bullet-proof glass between us.

    We met one of Joe’s old Brazilianist friends for a big and long lunch. After that, an Uber to the Pinacoteca, the state museum of Brazilian art. Though I had only heard of one of the painters, Tarsila do Amaral, I saw a lot of works I liked very much.

    We ended the day with dinner at Arabia, one of three or four of the top Lebanese restaurants in Sao Paulo. Absolutely delicious.

    It’s good having Katy along, because not only does she choose all the food, she also is our trip planner. So I can just go to sleep and forget about looking at the guidebook.

    USP and MASP (oospee and maspee)

    September 6, 2019 in Brazil ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Today was the trip to the university. That’s where Katy’s school, Joe’s department, and my institute was. We made it to the first two (my choice).

    After all the visits we headed to the main art museum. Paintings are displayed in rows of “glass easels.” Kind of disconcerting at first because all the info about the painting is stuck on the back of it. Goya, Velazquez , Bosch, and Van Gogh were just some of the many masters displayed.

    Since last night we had a pizza that we could never hope to beat (unless it were S-I-L Ben’s) at a really lovely restaurant named Veridiana (think Buñuel), we are going to scout for something different tonight.
