Nothing much happened in Sao Paulo. I was mainly there for the first day of the World Cup to experience the atmosphere.
In Peru, one could look out the plane window and see the endless stretch of the Andes mountain range. In the Amazon, it was the endless stretch of rainforest. It was flood season and it was evident from above. River houses dotted the scenery. The canopy was an unbelievable sight. It’s hard to believe that there is a city in the middle of it all. But there, 2 million people live, World Cup matches are going to be played, and people are flying in for tours of the Amazon.
I really don’t have much to say about Rio other than that I love the city. It’s one of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen and experienced.
