Why Howie? When there is Thailand, the Philipines, Cambodia, Vietnam. Many low budget tourist destinations that offer bang for your buck, why would someone want to go to Sao Paulo? You do not have to explain the beauty of Brazilian women thats given. Kev thinks you know something "THAT I DON'T" so i am just poking. --- Kev
Dana Heatley don't pass go just go directly to jail. What a pity when the future of Canada's national team weighs so heavily on the talent of players like Dana Heatley.
Kev - if someone found themselves in Sao Paulo for other reasons at some point in their lives and discovered the SP world down there, they would understand. It is indeed far flung and at least two flights from BC but, hey, he asked the question and that is my experience.
The combination of beauty, attitude, lack of "agenda", seeming inability to tell time and an understanding of how to get the male of our species to understand fully why life is worth living is some of it. The cost of a good meal out in, say, Vancouver will get you a week in many cases....another good aspect. Finally, very clean, extreme health awareness and lack of the things that can cause concern in the, ah, "business". I guess it just all adds up for me.
Each to their own. Most North Americans go to Rio and pay WAY too much for chichas and worse. If anyone is heading south, don't forget Sao Paulo!
I wont say that it is a great pooning city, but when I was younger and could hustle it instead of paying for it, the greatest place was Bahia, Brazil. Did you ever get up there HM. I was there many times in the late seventy's and the party never stopped. Knew some Bahians in RIO. Dont know how they made a living because even out of their home base, the party never stopped.
I always liked the atmosphere of Brazil. Seeing pictures of the people they always seemed so happy, and new how to have good time. One of these days i'll get myself there.
As far as Atlantis goes if still around i would be one lonely guy, cause i don't play the mandolin. I could probably muster a little Hendrix on the guitar. I wonder if that would've aroused the ladies? --- Kev
