Today is the Labor Day holiday in Brazil, so I have time today to post something new about Sao Paulo. Sao Paulo is not considered a tourist city, it is mostly an industrial city, and it is also considered the financial capital of Brazil and of South America. Even though it is not a tourist city and there are problems with crime & pollution & traffic, it does have some nice places to visit. One of these places is the Ipiranga Museum, which was built to commemorate the independance of Brazil in 1822. The museum is housed in a beautiful building and is surrounded by beautiful gardens. The museum includes many cultural objects and artifacts from the 6th to the 20th century that depict the history, culture, and life in Brazil. It also has alot of information on the history of the city of Sao Paulo. Here are some pictures to enjoy.
