This week marks one month of officially (and legally) living in São Paulo. It has been a good month. Our expat group is constantly expanding and we are both thoroughly enjoying work. In general, we’re happy to be working again, but we’re also enjoying what we’re doing – learning and contributing at the same time. Our portuguese is progressing slowly, but more and more we’ll be called upon to communicate in portuguese speaking meetings, so this will force the issue.
Last weekend was a gloomy one full of rainy days. Here’s a little peak at what life might be like in the heart of the rainy season, which is quickly approaching. This picture below was taken from the window of our cab as we were trying to get to the next neighborhood over. Also check out this video we took from inside the cab – yes, that is what I would call a sidewalk and road washing away.
This weekend we plan to explore a little bit more, so I hope to have some fun stories to share. And next week will be a busy one full of design workshops as the architects for our big project will be in town from London. This will really drive home the fact that we’re on the other side of the table (as in the developer side), so we’ll certainly let you know how that feels!
