Are you wondering what it’s like live in São Paulo, Brazil?
Let me tell you how it is! São Paulo is a large and populous city! Any commute takes hours because of jammed traffic. From my house to my job is a commute from about 14Km and it takes about 1h30 using public transport.
It means, wake up at 6h, leave home at 7h15, wait the bus at the bus stop (sadly, here, the buses does not obey the schedule) and, with luck, arrive at work at 9h.
At the end of the day, I leave work at 18h30 (at 18h the bus is extremely crowded, so, I often wait for a bus that I can seat) and arrive at home about 20h.
It’s very extenuating, believe me!
