Top List Tuesday #2

Hey guys! I'm having kind of a stressful week, and I'm looking forward to the holliday on friday (Brazil's Independence Day)... I'm going to the beach with some friends, and hopefully get some rest. But, as I have to face real life until friday, I thought that looking at the bright side of life would cheer me up. That's how I picked today's topic:

Top 3 reasons why I love São Paulo

São Paulo is the largest city in Brazil. It's my homeplace and I really enjoy living here. So, I thought of listing for you my favorite features on it, and at the same time remember myself how lucky I am to be here.

1. Avenida Paulista

Paulista Avenue is my favorite place ever. I work in there everyday, but still that's my favorite place to go on my free time. It's a huge avenue filled with restaurants, malls, bookstores, cool buildings and mainly cool and interesting people. That's where many remarkable events happen, and also where you can take a nice walk on a sunday morning (or on a saturday night, as in the day my boyfriend took this pic), surrounded by art on a nice urban environment.

2. Night clubs

One thing I love about living in a big city is that you also have a new place to visit. Really, it's impossible to go to all the cool places São Paulo has to offer, what means there are fun places to anyone. I have been to gay clubs, board game pubs, karaokes... and, my favorite one, a 50's themed night club named The Clock Rock Bar.

3. Street art and weird people

All kinds of arts (and other weird things that may or may not be considered as art) happen in São Paulo. There are street musicians, living statues, clowns, grafitti, ... and also some things that I'm not sure if are related to art or to weird people. I once have seen 5 girls brushing each other hairs in a line, all of them wearing white dresses, in Paulista Avenue, on a weekday. I don't really know their intention with that, but it surely made me love my city a bit more.

I think that seeing good things on the place you live it's a good practice.
What do you like most about your homeplace?
