In Sao Paulo, I had been relaxing and checking emails by the oval pool and just decided to move myself under one of the flimsy tents to avoid the harsh equatorial rays- redness comes fast. No sooner had I settled in when the sun was covered by thick clouds and the staff of the Tivoli São Paulo - Mofarrej, started a flurry of Brazilian activity- gathering all the lounge cushions, the stray stripe towels and piling them into the cabanas- one of which is where I was now stationed. Getting the non-verbal cues, I headed back to my 11th floor room.
This was the perfect vantage point to watch the Brazilian storm move into the city. It was cool watching the streets fill with water and people rush from the neighbouring park to the nearest cover. The power of the rain made the thick leave coverage a no go.
I filmed some of the excitement on my phone- I should get around to posting it soon! To help bring you a bit of language assistance for your future trips to the world’s fifth largest country.
