A country that, despite recently economic problems, it’s one of the most amazing places I’ve ever been. Also known as Hellas since the old days...

Back in São Paulo, BR, l decided to write an article about the coolest neighborhood in São Paulo: Vila Madalena (something that can be translated as Magdalena’s Village).
