Saturday morning I went for a longer run around Ibirapuera Park, a beautiful park in the heart of Sao Paulo. It had a 4-5 mile dirt loop that made for a perfect morning run.
After running, my coworkers and I found a huge food market downtown - quite a bit different from those in the US. Lots and lots of meat - dried fish, sausages, etc. Also, they had huge blocks of cheese and an amazing selection of local fruits (many of which I had never even heard about).
After the food market, we walked around the city and did a little souvenir shopping.
Check out the price tag on a pair of Asics shoes (equivalent of $380)!
Dinner was at a churrascaria - a Brazilian steakhouse where the waiters constantly bring around a variety of meats to try. It was delicious, and I probably ate 16 oz of red meat that night! Good for my iron!!
A fun day! More to come from the rest of the weekend.....
