Sao Paulo

Itau Culturel's botanical prints collection
With a month to go before we leave the Americas, I'm v grateful for an 11th hour opportunity to visit Brazil. It's a regional meeting in Sao Paulo, so I'll be in a conference room for most of the time but, hey, I'm not grumbling. 
I arrived in the morning so had the affernoon to look around, mainly the downtown Avenida Paulista area. Couple of interesting museums. The Museo de Arte de Sao Paulo (MASP) is a strange building on legs and, like the Soumaya Museum in Mexico City, its top-floor gallery exhibits paintings 'in the round' (ie you can see front & back). Just as strange is the Itau Culturel which houses a fantastically displayed botanical prints collection.
