Going to Brasil | Going to Brasil

Travel information for the frugal traveller who is looking quality and not quantity.
expatbrazil.co.uk's insight:

Excellent article from Goingtobrasil on a city tour with a difference, it's free! Not a lot nowadays is free so what do you get for nothing. Well a lot has it happens, its a walking tour showing all sides of the huge São Paulo and as a bonus it's in English. You can pick a tour of Old Downtown or the incredible Paulista Avenue. I'm planning a trip to São Paulo when my mum comes to visit and this sounds an ideal way to see and feel this great city. So hop over to GoingtoBrasil and get all the details.

Martin Roseveare's comment, May 15, 2013 12:07 PM
Granite forms underground where it can cool slowly and as such is not direct evidence for land. On the other hand basalt marks rapid cooling upon exposure to air. Not sure here what the evidence for land is..
expatbrazil.co.uk's comment, May 15, 2013 12:17 PM
Thanks for explaining that, Martin, interesting. I am keen on the story from the history point of view, fascinating. Love it when we discover new things.

good old continental crust would have been better description - which is not quite as good as Atlantis :)

expatbrazil.co.uk's insight:

So it looks like all the stadiums are at last on schedule. According to Ricardo Gomyde, Brazilian minister for sport, ”The construction schedule is up, all deadlines are under control and there is no stadium with red light.”

Great news.
