|360 degree view of Sao Paulo from Terraco Italia Restaurant|
|Haylsson laughs at the competition|
Over drinks I was able to talk with Halysson and Patricia more in depth about Sao Paulo. Patricia is an architect, and what I would refer to as an Urban Planning because she does not design buildings but rather the urban setting. She explained the set up of Sao Paulo and it was a great place to do so as we had a 360 degree view of the city from the top floor of one of the tallest buildings in the city. I also learned that Halysson was an avid poker player. In March, he won an online tournament at PokerStars and earned a free entry into a major No Limit Hold'Em Tournament in Latin America. Perhaps we will see him on ESPN in the World Series of Poker someday soon!
Small food plates starting filling our table as dinner was brought out. I ordered Filet and Mushroom strips which were served in a very tasty sauce. The only problem was that it was served with a spoon and no fork. Also on the plate was a salt or pepper shaker marked with one hole. I figured I would try some of the seasoning and eat my food with a spoon. When I went to shake some of the seasoning on my meat, I was shocked when a toothpick came out of the shaker. It suddenly hit me that I was suppose to use the toothpicks to eat the meat!
