As many city dwellers, Paulistanos usually do not know their own city. Many do not know the history of Sampa or what would be considered the “main touristic points”. We work from 8 am to 5 pm and there is little time to get to enjoy our city. But the weekends, ah the weekends! Weekends are the little heaven when Paulistanos get out of the offices to bask in the sun. And that is when TurisMetro strikes.
Sampa’s birthday was actually quite a while ago (January 25), but dut to my incredible ability to procrastinate, I decided to write about it today. As every megalopolis in the world, birthdays are taken seriously and some events are even sponsored by private parties, such as “Chefs na Rua” (Chefs on the Street). As the name goes, chefs from famous – read “expensive” – restaurants offer their signature dishes to the public for a pocket-friendly price. Of course, the dishes aren’t exactly full size and they are made by the ton, so the quality is probably not top notch. Even so, their effort is laudable and the food – in my opinion – is delicious!
