A massive weekend party

This one from Thursday. We went to Paulista avenue with Fernando, Mark & Adam. They came here to work in JWT Sao Paulo from JWT London office. This is a pizza place but they also have alcoholic drinks. Since lot’s of people and cultures lives in Brazil,Brazilianslove to mix things to have different styles. That’s why they have the second largest food cuisine of the world here. Here we try a different thing. A beer made of wine! It’s name is “Choppe De Vinho” which means exactly “beer made of wine” That was a big thing. :) Don’t worry you don’t miss a lot since you have Rak覺 back in Turkey. Dear Turkish friends. My rak覺 is ended. Please send me a bottle!!! Yeni Rak覺 if possible.

Asl覺nda bu perembe g羹n羹nden. 襤 癟覺k覺覺 Adam ve Mark ile Paulista’da bir pizza restoran覺na gittik. Pizzac覺 ama alkoll羹 i癟ecekler de var. Mark ve Adam buraya JWT Londra ofisinden hava deiimine gelmiler. 襤yi de etmiler. Onlarla tan覺ana kadar Sao Paulo’da baya s覺k覺l覺yordum. S羹per arkada olduk. Brezilya her k羹lt羹re sahip kar覺覺k bir 羹lke olduu i癟in Brezilyal覺lar alakas覺z eyleri birbirine kar覺t覺r覺p yeni eyler yaratmay覺 seviyorlar. Bu durum buran覺n kendine has bir k羹lt羹r羹 haline gelmi. Bu y羹zden buras覺 d羹nyan覺n en 癟eitli mutfak k羹lt羹rlerine sahip yerlerinden biri. 襤癟tiimiz ey de bu duruma g羹zel bir 繹rnek. arap kullan覺larak yap覺lm覺 bira. :) a覺rd覺n覺z deil mi. Ben de a覺rd覺m zaten. Hala ak覺n覺m. Merak etmeyin 癟ok bir ey ka癟覺rm覺yorsunuz. Tad覺 Fanta’ya benziyor biraz. Siz orada rak覺lar覺 mezeleri g繹t羹r羹rken biz b繹yle ne olduu belirsiz eyler i癟iyoruz ite. Biri bana rak覺 g繹ndersin! Tercihen Yeni rak覺. Rak覺m bitti rak覺m!

Friday after work. This is gonna be the last weekend of Adam and Mark. So we have a plan. A massive 2 days long party! We are not going to stop till we send these guys back to home. We started from the balcony of JWT and then we came to this small digital agency of JWT to keep going. Its name is Casa. They are focused on digital advertising. One interesting thing about JWT and its partner companies is a fridge full of free beer. However it’selectronicallylocked. Connected to office’s time sheet. If you fill your time sheets fridgeautomaticallyunlocks itself. :) An interesting way to motivate people.

Cuma iten sonra balkonda ekip癟e balkonda balayan parti JWT’nin partneri olan yan binada devam etti. Buras覺 Casa ad覺nda bir dijital reklam ajans覺. Adam ve Mark’覺n buradaki son haftasonu. Pazar g羹n羹 Londra’ya d繹necekleri i癟in 2 g羹n aral覺ks覺z bir parti yapma karar覺 verdik. Plan覺m覺z bu adamlar覺 u癟aa bindirene kadar Sao Paulo’nun alt覺n覺 羹st羹ne getirmek. JWT ve yan irketlerinde ilgin癟 bir uygulama var. 襤lerinizi bitirip zaman 癟izelgelerinizi tamamlay覺nca otomatik olarak a癟覺lan bir buzdolab覺 ve i癟i bedava bira dolu. 襤lerini g羹n羹 g羹n羹n羹ne halleden 癟al覺anlar b繹ylece 繹d羹llendiriliyor.

This is Vitoria. She looks like Catrine Zeta Jones a bit. Not here maybe. She is a planner in the agency.

Vitoria buran覺n strateji ekibinden. Y羹z羹 biraz Catrine Zeta Jones’a benziyor sanki.

After drinking a lot of free beers in the agency, finally we decided to move out and go to a JapaneseKaraokebar. Its name is Chopperia Liberdade

Ajansta bir buzdolab覺 dolusu bedava bira var. Bu biralardan yeterince i癟tikten sonra d覺ar覺 癟覺k覺p bir Karaoke bar’a gidiyoruz. Buras覺 Chopperia Liberdade.

We had huge fun here. Singing a song costs 2 reals. People sing like crazy here and everybody in the bar joins to keep it enjoyable. Especially Mark is very good at this karaokething. The song list is like a giant encyclopedia. They have all the western popular songs and also the Japanese ones. Sometimes they force people to sing in Japanese which is pretty funny.

Burada 癟ok elendik. Bi kere ortam renkli, g羹zel, yemekler 癟ok pahal覺 deil. Mangallar覺 da var. ark覺 s繹ylemek 2 real. Ayn覺 kii devaml覺 s繹yleyemiyor. S羹rekli farkl覺 kiilerin isimlerini 癟a覺r覺yorlar. ark覺 listesi dev bir ansiklopedi gibi. T羹m 羹nl羹 bat覺 m羹ziklerine ek olarak Japon m羹zikleri de eklenince ortaya dev bir ariv 癟覺km覺. Bazen bir de insanlara zorla Japonca ark覺 s繹yletiyorlar ki bu da baya bi komik oluyor.

Next morning around 05:00 am. We get out ofKaraokebar half dead after singing all the night. We were hungry, drunk and had some throat pain. We looked for a place to sit some and keep drinking some more beer. It’s not my thing but these guys just don’t stop.

Sabah 05:00 falan san覺r覺m. Kareoke’den 癟覺k覺yoruz. T羹m gece deliler gibi ark覺 s繹ylemiiz. Sanki 羹nl羹 bir grubuz da b羹t羹n gece performans sergilemiiz gibi yorgunuz. Sesler gitmi, boazlar bitik, kar覺nlar a癟. Bulduumuz s羹per dandik bir yerde bir eyler at覺t覺r覺yor ve yan覺nda bira i癟meye devam ediyoruz.

Then some people from mafia came and talked with us. They advised us some dirty places to go.Fernando told us that it could be dangerous to go there so we just escaped for a breakfast.

Sonra mafyadan adamlar geldi. Zil zurna sarho bu adamlar bizle arkada olmaya 癟al覺t覺lar. Sonra bize abuk subuk baz覺 yerlere gitmemizi tavsiye ettiler. Ama bizi oraya y繹nlendirip orada adamlar覺 taraf覺ndan param覺z eyam覺z araklan覺r ba覺m覺z belaya girer dedik tabi tabi deyip topuklad覺k.

We decided to use subway. There was a group of Chinese people making Tai chi in very early morning. Then we entered the subway but it didn’t worked for a long time. Hundreds of people were waiting inside the metro. Then weheardthe announcement that somebody jumped to rails to suicide and that’s why subway was not working.

Sonra metroya binelim dedik. Metro giriine geldiimizde bir grup 癟inlinin sabah覺n g繹r羹nde Thi Chi yapt覺覺n覺 g繹rd羹k. Bir ka癟覺m覺z onlara k覺sa bir s羹re elik etti. Sonra metroya girdik. Aa覺 indik bir de bakt覺k ki metro i癟i insan dolmu ekilde bekliyor. Uzun s羹re biz de orada bekledik herhalde bir ar覺za var diye ama deien bir ey olmad覺. Bir s羹re sonra anons yap覺ld覺. Meer intihar etmek isteyen biri kendini raylara atm覺 ve bu y羹zden metro bekliyormu. Her nedense bu metro uzun s羹re 癟al覺mad覺. 襤nsanlar da yava yava pes edip da覺ld覺lar. Biz de vazge癟tik ve gideceimiz yere y羹r羹meye karar verdik.

We walked around and had a breakfast in a bazaar kind of place. We drank sugarcane which is known as “Caldo De Cana” in Brazil and ate some traditionalBrazilian dish named Pastel.

Y羹r羹ye y羹r羹ye sonunda pazar gibi bir yere geldik ve burada Brezilya’n覺n kendine 繹zg羹 at覺t覺rmal覺klar覺yla kahvalt覺 ettik. Pastel ad覺nda son derece sal覺ks覺z bir k覺zartma yedikten sonra 羹zerine bir de Caldo de Cana ad覺nda bir i癟ecekle kahvalt覺y覺 noktalam覺 olduk.

Some scenes from our long morning walk.

Uzun sabah y羹r羹羹 s覺ras覺nda ge癟tiimiz yerler.

We came back to Paulista and drank some beer on the street. And decided to walk around and find a place for a nice lunch.

Tekrar Paulista’day覺z. ocuklar zorla bira i癟iyorlar gene. Bu sefer sokakta dikilip i癟iyoruz. Kar覺m覺zda da bir televizyon program覺 i癟in 癟ekim yap覺l覺yor. Sunucu abla g羹zel. biralar覺 i癟iyor 癟ekimi izliyoruz.

“Caos” is a store where you can find lots of old, vintage stuff but they are just amazingly expensive. From clothes to toys you can find many things from 80′s even 70′s here. Nobody bought anything. However it was fine to check it out.

“Caos” eski ve tarz 羹r羹nler, eyalar satan bir d羹kkan. Oyuncaktan k覺yafete ne ararsan覺z var. 襤癟eri girince buram buram 80′ler kokusu kar覺l覺yor sizi. Tabi s羹per pahal覺 olduu i癟in herkes bakmakla yetindi.

Then we moved to “Copan.” It’s one of the biggest buildings of Sao Paulo including 500 flats inside.

Sonra “Copan” ad覺ndaki yere gidiyoruz. Buras覺 i癟indeki 500 daire ile Sao Paulo’nun en b羹y羹k binalar覺ndan birisi.

At the bottom of the Copan there is a nice restaurant. I can’t remember the name but the food was delicious. We wait some to find a table there but it worth it.

Copan’覺n hemen alt覺nda s羹per bir restoran var. Ad覺n覺 unuttuum bu yerde yemek yemenizi tavsiye ederim. Menuden ne s繹ylerseniz s繹yleyin harika bir yemek yersiniz. Tabi yemekle beraber i癟meye de devam ediyoruz. Kombomuz bozulmas覺n diye bir olay uydurmular devaml覺 i癟meleri gerekiyormu :)

Then we were walking on streets and entering to different bars for quick drinks. This is Dom Jose Gaspar. People were dancing in the rain and doing samba in the street. We joined them as well. Drinking and dancing under the rain was a memorable experience for Sao Paulo. Mark and Adam also bought these hats :)

Sonra sokakta y羹r羹yerek birer i癟ki i癟in g繹rd羹羹m羹z barlara girip 癟覺kmaya balad覺k. S覺ra s覺ra giderken sokakta duyduumuz samba m羹ziini takip ettik ve yamurun alt覺nda dans edip i癟en bi grup insan bulduk. K羹癟羹k bir ekip sokakta kendi m羹ziini yap覺yor ve insanlar da dans ediyordu. Biz de kat覺ld覺k tabi. Yamurda i癟ip dans etmek g羹zeldi. Ben yine 癟iftetelli fig羹rlerimi g繹stermekten geri kalmad覺m.

Somewhere in Dom Jose Gaspar.

Dom Jose Gaspar’da bir yer.

Ta daa! At the end of the night we found ourselves here in theKaraokebar again. Mark loves it a lot. And he is good at it too. He rocked the place again. Even better than yesterday. But we started with a couplebilliardgame first.

Ta daaa! 襤te gene Kareoke barday覺z. Benim olay覺m deil ama Mark 癟ok seviyor buray覺. 襤yi de s繹yl羹yor kerata. Bu gece d羹nk羹nden de iyiydi. Baya patlatt覺k ortam覺 hep birlikte. Ama 繹nce bir ka癟 el bilardoyla balad覺k bu sefer.

After a lot of shots, drinking Cachasa and Cachasa Caipirinha I was dead drunk. Cachasais the most popular distilled alcoholic beverage in Brazil. It is also known as aguardente (Portuguese for “burning water”), pinga, caninha and many other names.Cacha癟a, like rum, has two varieties: unaged (white) and aged (gold). White cacha癟a is usually bottled immediately after distillation and tends to be cheaper (some producers age it for up to 12 months in wooden barrels to achieve a smoother blend). It is often used to prepare caipirinha and other beverages in which cacha癟a is an ingredient. Dark cacha癟a, usually seen as the “premium” variety, is aged in wood barrels and is meant to be drunk straight (it is usually aged for up to 3 years though some “ultra premium” cacha癟as have been aged for up to 15 years). Itsflavoris influenced by the type of wood the barrel is made from.

Burada bir s羹r羹 Cachasa ve Cachasa Caipirinha i癟tik. Ben inan覺lmaz sarho oldum. Nas覺l oldu anlamad覺m ama bir anda baya yamuldum diyebilirim. Bizim 癟ocuklar s羹nger gibi ne versen i癟iyorlar. Cachasa i癟erisinde 癟ok alkol olan bir i癟ki ama bol bol eker ve meyve olduu i癟in meyvesuyu gibi gidiyor. Haliyle ben biraz h覺zl覺 gittim san覺r覺m. Cachasa’lar da y覺lland覺k癟a deerleri ve tatlar覺 artan i癟kiler. Brezilya’n覺n rak覺s覺 diyebileceimiz buraya 繹zel bir i癟ki. eker kam覺覺n覺n mayalanmas覺 sonucu elde edilen bir lik繹r. Bu lik繹r dam覺t覺ld覺ktan sonra eker ve lime ile kar覺t覺r覺l覺p, k覺r覺lm覺 buz ile servis ediliyor. Caipirinha adl覺 ekzotik kokteyl de yine onunla yap覺l覺yor.

At the end of the night. Actually not for all of them. But for me. :) I wasn’t feeling so good after 2 days of nonsleeping drinking and decided to go back to my hotel. But these guys were about to keep going tillSundaymorning. They went to a club. It was far and entrance wasn’t free. It’s like 60 reals but you can have free drinks cost to 60 reals once you get in. Since I had no more space to drink anything in my stomach I just gave up and return to bed. :) I think I missed some great moments back there but I had no much options. At least you can understand the mood of us when I was ending the night at right picture.

Gecenin sonu. Asl覺nda sadece benim i癟in. Bu adamlar Pazar sabah覺na kadar olaya devam etmekte kararl覺. Ben bittim. O son Cachasa’y覺 i癟memeliydim. Arkadalar buradan bir gece kl羹b羹ne gidecekler. Mekan hem uzak hem de giri paral覺. Girie 繹dediiniz paray覺 i癟eride bedava i癟eceklerle dengeliyorsunuz ama benim bir ey i癟ecek halim kalmad覺. Muhtemelen 癟ok b羹y羹k anlar ka癟覺rd覺m ama 癟ok se癟eneim yoktu. Ben ayr覺l覺rken ekibin son bir fotoraf覺n覺 癟ektim. 襤te tipler bu haldeydi.
