Just back from a fast-pitch softball tournament in, of all places, the wildly endless sprawl known as Sao Paulo, Brazil.
|"You have much hate in your part of the world, right?"--Brazilian woman|
They say that about 20 million people live in Sao Paulo, which makes it one of the world's largest metropolitan areas.
During "down time" from the games, which was about 90 percent of the trip, we bounced around the city in search of samba, steak (suspension of our skimpy red-meat eating habits was mandatory) and other adventures.
For the record, nothing we did (or can recall at this point) has to "stay in Sao Paulo," a la Las Vegas.
Brazilians for the most part are a friendly and lively bunch, and love to converse in English with their American guests whenever possible.
