* Its [[BlatantLies gentle and sunny]] weather. São Paulo is euphemistically nicknamed ''Cidade da Garoa'' by older Brazilians (Lit. "city of drizzle"). In reality, the characteristic drizzle, if it was ever this common, now mostly gives way to violent, sudden thunderstorms. São Paulo sees very little sunlight - it is overcast most days of the year. Its weather resembles a warmer Seattle. Paulistanos seem to sometimes [[OurVampiresAreDifferent shy away from the sun]] in warmer Brazilian cities. Strong winds are not uncommon, and sudden, unpredictable temperature shifts are considered the norm. The monsoons during the summer cause floods - usually tragic, thanks to insufficient drainage. Most if not all small streams in the city have been paved over, leaving underground galleries that can't accommodate the water flow during heavy rain, and both major rivers are surrounded by multi-lane highways.

First of all, it isn't Sao Paolo or San Pablo. It's ''São Paulo'' (literally ''Saint Paul'',[[note]]Yes, like [[UsefulNotes/TwinCities the capital of Minnesota]][[/note]] because it was founded on January 25).

In other words, if you need a comparison: São Paulo=New York with Los Angeles' traffic, Boston's street plan, and Seattle's rain, at the same latitude as Miami (each is about 25 degrees south or north of the Equator, respectively).
