  Americana by night
by Bigjones

Favorite thing: We landed in Sao Paulo one day of June. But we actually began our trip by visting some friends in Americana, a 150,000 inhabitants city located at about 100km from there. There is not much too see there but it was so much nicer than the huge Sao Paulo and we had so much fun !

Fondest memory: As from the start, we realized we wouldn't sleep much and party a lot. We arrived during "la Festa de Peao" (cowboy's festival). We could see cowboys and rodeos on airs of country music. During a second, I thought I had taken the wrong plane and arrived in an other country. This was so different from what I imagined. But then I realized it was typical from that region. Brazil is such a huge country that it's full of contrasts.
