What you'll do
We'll meet at a subway station and walk to a neighborhood farmers' market where we'll do a traditional activity for Paulistanos (natives of São Paulo city), which is to eat pastel and caldo de cana or água de coco. Pastel is a street food fried pastry which is usually savory, but they also have sweet versions of it. It can be filled with meet, cheese, hearts of palm, or other options. Typical sweet fillings are chocolate or banana with cinnamon. Caldo de cana or garapa is a sugarcane juice freshly prepared, usually only served at these neighborhood farmers market and água de coco is coconut water. We'll have a stroll on the farmer's market, checking out Brazilian fruits and vegetables where I'll comment what is typical in Brazil, and mainly in São Paulo. You'll leave knowing you did something locals do on a weekly base, eat pastel and drink sugar cane juice or coconut water, and experience the lifestyle of Paulistanos.
I was born and raised in Sao Paulo. After living in other countries (USA, Germany and England) to study, I recently returned to my hometown, where I can experience the city with a different set of eyes. I have a background in psychology, neuroscience and a PhD in cognitive innovation, as well as I work as a screenwriter and independent filmmaker.
