Photo of The Week:

Just over a week ago, I had the opportunity to meet up with my friend Daniel Carlini and his wife for Sao Paulo style pizza and a beer. At dinner we discussed how unlike in the U.S., here in Sao Paulo, you could drink a beer walking down the street. Daniel worked in Cleveland for a couple of years and said that sometimes it still feels odd if he drinks a beer outside of a restaurant or bar now that he is back in Sao Paulo. So, one of my favorite sayings "When in Rome" suddenly transformed to "When in Sao Paulo".

We grabbed a couple of beers to go and headed down the street to my hotel. As we walked through a mall drinking our beers, Daniel mentioned I should get a picture of me drinking in the street. To add to the picture, we noticed a Police car just outside of the mall. So as any great explorer would do, I took a picture with Police car in the background, while I drank my beer in the street, in front of the Police. Cheers Sao Paulo.

Its legal to drink in the street, even in front of the Police, in Sao Paulo
