Stadiums, São Paulo
If you are travelling to Sao Paolo, do not miss come to Morumbi Stadium the home base of Sao Paolo FC. It become a crazy noisy place when Sao Paolo FC played there, you'll see how crazy Brazilian with football.
It is very easy to go there when there is a football match, just go to the nearest train station or bus terminal, you'll find a lot of group of supporters. All you need to do is to follow them, lucky if you find some supporter that can speak english.
I've an experience when I wanted to buy a ticket, I go to the wrong counter that is only for fans club member (we must show the member card). Luckily, I met with a young couple that speak English and they helped me buy the ticket by use their member card.
Thanks folks :) It was unforgetable moment..

Very interesting thing to standing with the Brazilian. They are kind hearted and keep telling me how to buy a ticket and how to enter the play ground in Portuguese and from some of their words I guess they just think I am a Japanese.
I never had the opportunity, but if you get the chance, check out a game of futebol (we Americans call it soccer) at the ENORMOUS stadium in Sao Paulo. I'm sure it's a great experience! Brazilians are huge fans of futebol!
To feel and know the Brazilian it's better to watch a football match. Even not a first class one you can also enjoy yourself very much.
