*Adjective Forms*

   The city of São Paulo

São Paulo is the  city in South America and the third  city of the world, with more than 10 million inhabitants. It is the economical capital of Brazil and a very   place. It is also  in culture parks and museums.


São Paulo is centered around the Praça da Sé, where there is a stone mark symbolizing the "point zero" of the city. The subway system is  and  but covers only a few areas of the city, although extensions are being made.  neighborhoods to visit include Jardins, Itaim and the Ibirapuera Park.

The main sights in the city include the different neighborhoods with their  Italian, Japanese or Arabic influences. They have their own characteristic atmosphere and it is a lot of fun to just walk around, go to one of the many  restaurants or have a drink somewhere.

Brazilians say that paulistanos (São Paulo locals) live to work and to eat, which is probably true. Food in São Paulo is the  in the country and rivals that of any major capital in the world. If you are there and like to eat meat, make sure you try the rodizios (barbecue) or feijoada (pork and beans - served only on Wednesdays and Saturdays). The pizzas are also extremely tasteful and a must-eat. You can find it from a  range of restaurants from the  delivery place to fine  ones.

São Paulo is also very much a party town. You can get stuck in traffic in the middle of the night when party animals return from their hunt.

Automotive traffic in São Paulo is , especially in main routes, all along the weekdays and gets  at rush hours (from 8 am to 10 am and from 6 pm to 8 pm). Laws to regulate traffic include a rule forbidding cars to circulate at specific week days depending on the final number of their license. On the weekends the traffic is  with some complications in places where there are bars, shopping centers or other public attractions.

São Paulo has the  underground transportation system in Brazil: the "Metro". It is not as  as the trains in Europe or North America, but it serves most of the important areas. It is the  and  way to get around São Paulo.
