Our city Santos is one of many cities located on the coast, about 1 1/2 hour from the mega city of Sao Paulo. Whenever there is nice and warm & sunny weather like this weekend, tens of thousands of people like to get out of Sao Paulo and come to the beach for the weekend. There are 2 main highways that go from Sao Paulo to our area, which is called the Baixada Santista, and on nice weekends and holidays these highways are packed full of cars with people fleeing the big mega city. Below is a picture of the mass exodus from Sao Paulo that was in an online news site this morning. It was taken at a toll booth area just outside of Sao Paulo.
