  • The best part in your text, is when you say about Corinthians. And with Ronaldo in the team, make this better than is. Here in Madrid, we talked very much about the team and about the phenomenon.
    So, when I went to Brazil, I HAD to knew the club. And is amazing, everything there.
    Corinthians is the most brazilian club famous in the world.
    The Corinthians fans are perefects. They never leave the team alone, always play with Corinthians, and they jump and sing in entire 90 minutes.
    My dream is see a Corinthians game in Pacaembu stadium. I doesn't seen a game when I was there, because the team played in a near city from SP.
    But I was searching about the team, they history, everything, and I am fall in love for the team.
    I found the greatest players as played for Corinthians, and a found many famous, like:
    Dida, Sylvinho, Edu, Socrates, Carlitos, Gamarra, Garrincha, Rivelino, and many others.
    Corinthians is one of the biggers clubs in the world.

  • David,
    As a Brazilian and a "paulistano", I'd like to thank you for the text. Indeed, Sao Paulo is a vibrant city and one of the most diverse and cosmopolitan places in the world.
    Although the city has many problems and is a bit chaotic, it offers a pleasant and very welcoming atmosphere.
    As to the comment of Raul Raf above, football fans visiting Sao Paulo may attend the Museum of Football at Pacaembu Stadium, which has a huge collection of portraits, photos, and other antiques about Brazilian football. Another great spot is the Museum of Sao Paulo F.C. at Morumbi Stadium.
    I would rather suggest a football match of Sao Paulo F.C., which is the most famous Brazilian football club abroad. The environment at Morumbi Stadium is incredible and safer.
    To the tourists in the city of Sao Paulo, I would recommend a visit to the Municipal Theater, the Museum of Art of Sao Paulo (MASP), the Pinacoteca, the Ibirapuera Park, the Paulista Museum (or the Independence Museum)... Many interesting sites to be seen!
    All the best,

  • David,
    As a frequent visitor to Sao Paulo, I agree with everything you have said. It is a bright vibrant city, with wonderful welcoming people.
    As a developing nation it has its problems, but even over the short period of time I have been visiting the City I have seen huge changes, economically and socially. Without question Brazil will over the next ten years become a very important legal and financial centre for world trade.
    I am currently considering emigrating to Sao Paulo, however I have found that the legal fraternity to be very small and there to be little specialised legal recruitment agencies. Any advice?
