Sao Paulo - Post Report Question and Answers

What do you wish you had known about this particular city/country before moving there?

Sao Paulo is loud. There are SO MANY people EVERYWHERE. Traffic and roadways are awful. Motorcyclists do not care if they hit your car. They only care that you don't impede their movement. Apartment construction work is nearly constant. There are some really amazing bakeries and restaurants. The people are the most friendly and welcoming people you will ever meet. - May 2021

How hard it is to do anything official. How fun the city is. How we don't live close to "happening" areas of the city. - Aug 2019

We wish had known about the infrastructure struggles that resulted in frequent power outages which can be an absolute drain on you. Also, we wish people would have been more open about the safety issues. - Nov 2017
