Sao Pualo, Brazil

I arrived safely in Sao Paulo. To a total of 24 hours of traveling. On the way to Campanis, we passed some of the slums of Sao Paulo. The small houses were built on top of each other. They were made of planks of wood and card board. We passed a great deal of them along the highway.

We traveled along the cemented river. Similar to the LA river, it smelled of sewage. There were large installations of soda bottles lining both sides of the river. The bottles were red, white, green and yellow. They were huge, probably 40 feet long and 10 feet wide.

MAY 21 -JUNE 5

I'm leaving for Brazil tomorrow morning. First with a flight to Atlanta, then onward to Sao Paulo. I have no idea why there are no flights directly from LAX.
