Well, like all good plans, ours to stay one more day in Sao Paulo fell through. No big deal. The fact of the matter is that we didn’t want to spend more money when we could easily be at home and saving it, and when you go to Sao Paulo, there’s too many opportunities to spend, even if it is on cool things like Starbucks and art museums. And the other fact of the matter is that I wanted to wake up in my own home on Sunday morning. So by four in the afternoon we stumbled off the bus in Campinas and headed home, but not before buying bus tickets to Rio for this coming weekend. Yum.
I think the things that will always make me happy, regardless of where I am in the world or what I’m doing, are these: the smell of coffee in the morning, and the understanding that I don’t necessarily have to go anywhere on a rainy day on the weekend. This is the state I find myself in this morning and I couldn’t be more excited. This weekend has felt impossibly long because we left for the city on Thursday night, and so I feel like while we packed the weekend full of activity and walking around, we (excuse me, “I”) have time enough to recuperate before returning to work tomorrow. Plus, it is raining and we have two movies to watch. I can’t think of a better day.
Oh. I wanted to put links to some of the places we visited yesterday in Sao Paulo. Here they are:
