Sao Paulo, Brazil

Over at FIFA’s website, the profile for Sao Paulo tells us that this is the biggest city in Brazil, with more than 11 million people. So let’s take a little walk around the place, thanks to Flickr photographers (click on each pic to see more of their stuff).

Porto Alegre, Brazil

August MacGregor

Back to our tour of World Cup cities… today’s stop is Porto Alegre. Just a bit about this city from FIFA’s profile: “Porto Alegre lies on the eastern bank of the Guaíba River, right at the convergence point of five other rivers, which together form the enormous Lagoa dos Patos (Ducks Lagoon).” You can see more of these photographers’ works by clicking on each pic below.
