    What a fabulous place – pity about the necessity for security screens and bars on all the windows.

    Sean, I'm from São Paulo and sometimes I think all the security they put is just for their own minds… to build walls and to put bars is just a illusion, they won't protect us from any kind of violence. Well, but that's another discussion… :0)
