Hi, I am looking forward to having this service to sightseeing in Sao Paulo and other cities in a few weeks. Now, I am staying in Sao Paulo and am waiting to meet a good local friend for enjoying this city... please give a message via this site or emails. For instance, if having meals, I expect to treat for myself and my friend. If you're interested in, please contact me via "aiden0107" as gamil account. Thanks,
