First 2 weeks in Brazil

I had a 3 hours flight from Buenos Aires to Sao Paulo. And the departure time was 05:00 am. I don’t know why but the agency booked my a taxi for 22:00 pm. Since I had no money to pay for another taxi. I had to move to airport at 22:00 pm and wait there till 05:00 am. After this long waiting times I had my three hours of flight and land to Sao Paulo. Mr. Luis was waiting for me with a huge card my name written on it. He is the driver of the agency. He took me to my hotel. It took a long time to arrive to the place because of Sao Paulo traffic. I fell a sleep half way to hotel. It’s named as Ibis Budget Hotel located in Jardins. A nice, clean and big hotel with lots of small rooms. I arrived to the room, closed the door, dropped my bag and directly jumped into the bed. I opened my eyes next morning and started to check out where the hell I am.

Buenos Aires’den Sao Paulo’ya sabah 05:00′da kalkan 3 saatlik bir u癟uum vard覺. Nedense Furia’n覺n sekreterihava alan覺nagitmek i癟in bana 22:00′da taksi ayarlam覺. Taksici 襤ngilizce bilmiyordu ve derdimi zar zor da olsa anlatmaya 癟al覺t覺m. 襤stediim ey onun daha sonra gelmesi ve benim o s羹rede evde uyuyup dinlenmemdi. Ama of繹r bana taksi 羹cretinin 繹dendiini sonraki saatlerde gelemeyeceini 癟羹nk羹 o zamanlara baka m羹terileri almas覺 gerektiini s繹yledi. daha sonra baka bir taksi 癟a覺racak param da olmad覺覺 i癟in gece saat 22:00′da hava alan覺na doru yola 癟覺kt覺m. Saat sabah 05:00′a kadar hava alan覺nda bekledim ve 羹zerine 3 saatlik u癟ula Sao Paulo’ya vard覺m. Havas Worldwide’覺n 繹f繹r羹 Luis beni kap覺da elinde ismimin yaz覺l覺 olduu dev bir kartla bekliyordu. Luis ile yolda konumaya 癟al覺t覺k ama o da 襤ngilizce bilmedii i癟in sohbet 癟ok ilerleyemedi. Zaten ben de 癟ok yorgundum ve arabada uyuyakald覺m. Otele varmam覺z trafik s覺k覺覺kl覺覺 y羹z羹nden birka癟 saat s羹rd羹. Jardins adl覺 semtte Ibis Budget Hotel adl覺 temiz ve b羹y羹k bir yerde oda tutulmu benim i癟in. Odaya girdim, 癟antam覺 yere b覺rak覺p yataa atlad覺m. G繹z羹m羹 ertesi g羹n羹n sabah覺 a癟t覺m ve oday覺 kefetmek i癟in yataktan ayr覺ld覺m.

This is my room. It’s enough comfortable for 3 people and I am staying alone here. I have a small tv, big bed, hot water and air conditioner. Bathroom and toilet isseparated. No free internet, but one day unlimited wi-fi is just for 3 reals. However it’s quite slow.

Oda asl覺nda 3 kiinin rahatl覺kla uyuyabilecei ekilde tasarlanm覺. K羹癟羹k bir televizyon var, internet 羹cretli ve 癟ok yava ama gayet hesapl覺. Banyo ve tuvalet ayr覺 k羹癟羹k odac覺klar eklinde.

My room is in 18th floor. When I look down out of the window it reminded me the first “Grant Theft Auto”. I was playing that game when I was a teenager. Now I’m waiting for the 5th game of the series nowadays. I hope it will be launched when I return back to home :) Then I will sit with my best buddies, drink raki, eat Turkish food and play it from start to end.

Oda 18. katta. Pencereden bak覺nca g繹rd羹羹m sahne bana ilk “Grand Theft Auto” oyununu hat覺rlatt覺. Serinin beinci oyunu u an yap覺m aamas覺nda ve ben eve d繹nd羹羹mde umar覺m marketlerde olacak. Oturup batan sona oynamak i癟in sab覺rs覺zlan覺yorum.

I went out for a small walk to discover around. One of the first things I recognized is that graffitis are still good and around the city. Not as much as Buenos Aires but still it’s quite possible to catch pretty nice stuff on streets.

K羹癟羹k bir keif turu i癟in d覺ar覺 癟覺kt覺覺mda ilkfark ettiimeylerden biri yine grafitiler oldu. Buenos Aires kadar yayg覺n ve her yerde olmasa da zaman zaman harika iler g繹rmek m羹mk羹n.

This cable mess reminds me my days in Asia. Especially Thailand.

Buradaki kablo karmaas覺 bana Asya g羹nlerimi hat覺rlatt覺. zellikle Tayland’覺.

I saw these machines in an exotic auto dealer but actually you can’t see these kind of cars on the streets. No old classics, no exotics, no sport cars… The population of cars here in Sao Paulo is quite boring. Nothing special.

Yolda y羹r羹rken b繹yle bir oto galerisi g繹rd羹m, g繹rd羹m ama trafikte bu t羹r ara癟lara pek denk gelemiyorsunuz. Sao Paulo trafii olduk癟a s覺k覺c覺. Arabalar genelde birbirinin ayn覺s覺 s覺k覺c覺 modeller. Cape Town’da ya da bir 癟ok yerde s羹rekli g繹receiniz tarz arabalardan burada g繹remiyorsunuz. a覺rt覺c覺.

I asked the reception desk about where I can go around the hotel to check some cool places and they told me to go to the Park Ibirapuera which is two blocks away from the hotel. This is the monument to the Bandeiras, a stone sculpture group byVictor Brecheret, located outside of the park. There is also a big lake in the park which has a boring water dance show.

Aa覺 inip resepsiyondaki k覺za buralarda nereye gidebileceimi sordum. Bana verdii cevap: “no english” oldu. :) Sonra 襤ngilizce bilen birini bulup ondan tavsiye ald覺m. 襤lk dura覺m otelden 2 blok uzakta olanIbirapuera park覺yd覺. Parka doru bana tarif edilen yoldan y羹r羹meye balad覺m. Fotoraftaki dev heykeli g繹rd羹羹mde parka geldiini anlam覺t覺m. Park覺n i癟inde ayr覺ca kocaman bir de g繹l bulunuyor. Bu g繹lde f覺skiyeler yard覺m覺yla bir 癟eit su g繹sterisi yer almakta. Dubai’dekinden sonra inan覺lmaz s覺k覺c覺 gelen bu su g繹sterisini biraz izliyor ve parka giriyorum.

Park is big. Yes really really big. I came here Friday and a lot of people were here walking, running, skating, cycling whatever. It’s a nice place in the middle of the city to escape from the citylife.

Park b羹y羹k. Baya baya b羹y羹k. Buraya cuma g羹n羹 geldim ve g羹zel bir y羹r羹y羹 yapt覺m. Etraf gayet canl覺yd覺. Kaykayc覺lar, bisikletliler, paten kayanlar, koanlar, sokak g繹sterileri ve bitmez t羹kenmez bir yeillik. ehirden ka癟mak i癟in ehrin tam ortas覺nda b繹yle bir park olmas覺 harika.

This big lake moves around the park and creates a nice atmosphere inside.

Bu dev g繹l park覺n bir 癟ok yerine uzanan kollar覺yla g羹zel ortamlar yaratmakta.

There are a lot of statues in the park. It’s good for memorizing places. It helps you to understand where you are. Otherwise you can draw circles and get lost in this big place.

Parkta 癟ok say覺da heykel var. Bu heykeller sayesinde insan nerede olduunu ya da nereden ge癟tiini daha iyi anl覺yor. Yoksa yeillikler i癟inde daireler 癟izip kaybolmak 癟ok kolay.

Bikers doing crazy stunt moves andpracticingall around.

Bisikletlilerin baz覺lar覺 acayip yetenekli.

It’s not so often but sometimes they fall :)

ok s覺k deil ama arada yere yap覺t覺klar覺 oluyor.

This park is like a talent show. :) Everybody’s doing something by it’s own in a corner.

Park deil yetenek yar覺mas覺 sanki. Her k繹ede birileri bir eyler yap覺yor.

I really loved the nature of this place.

Doa harika.

Brazil is more into football instead of basketball. You know that right? Turn on any TV channel here in Brazil and you see a football match or people talking about football or advertising. Yes Brazil is one of the best countries when it comes to advertising.

Basketboldan ziyade Brezilya bir futbol 羹lkesi bunu zaten biliyorsunuzdur. Burada televizyonu a癟覺n, kanallar覺 繹yle bir gezin. G繹receiniz ey ya bir futbol ma癟覺, ya futbol tart覺an adamlar ya da reklamlar olacak. Evet Brezilya’da futbol kadar 繹nemli olan bir dier ey ise reklamc覺l覺k. Brezilya bu konuda d羹nyan覺n en iyi 羹lkelerinden biri.

Phosphor mash in the middle of greens.

Yeiller i癟inde bir fosfor curcunas覺.

A nice “L” couch for the living room :)

L k繹e tak覺m覺.

Then I learned that there was a modern art museum here in the park. It’s near the gate 4. So I decided to have a look.

Meer park覺n i癟inde bir de modern sanat m羹zesi varm覺. Ziyaret etmek isterseniz 4. kap覺n覺n hemen yan覺nda bulunuyor.

Here I am inside. It’s bigger then I imagined. There are quite good works and quite bad ones as well.

襤te i癟erideyim. Tahminimden 癟ok daha b羹y羹k, bu mekanda 癟ok iyi iler de var, olmasa da olurmu diyeceiniz iler de var.

The Museum has a collection and includes works by artists such as: Anita Malfatti, Aldo Bonadei, Alfredo Volpi, Emiliano Di Cavalcanti, Jos矇 Ant籀nio da Silva, Joan Mir籀, Marc Chagall, Mario Zanini and Pablo Picasso.

M羹zeAnita Malfatti, Aldo Bonadei, Alfredo Volpi, Emiliano Di Cavalcanti, Jos矇 Ant籀nio da Silva, Joan Mir籀, Marc Chagall, Mario Zanini and Pablo Picasso gibi sanat癟覺lar覺n ilerini bar覺nd覺r覺yor.

The Museu de Arte Moderna de S瓊o Paulo, or MAM, is one of the most important museums of modern art in Brazil.

Brezilya’n覺n en 繹nemli modern sanat m羹zelerinden biri MAM.

The museum was founded by Francisco Matarazzo Sobrinho.

M羹ze,Matarazzo Sobrinho taraf覺ndan kurulmu.

There was also a section where they display old print advertisings.

M羹ze de eski bas覺n ilanlar覺n覺n sergilendii bir b繹l羹m de mevcut.

The Museum is established in Ibirapuera Park, the MAM was one of the first establishments dedicated to modern art in the country, its development inspired by the MoMA in New York.

M羹ze Brezilya’n覺n ilk modern sanat m羹zesi 羹nvan覺n覺 da ta覺yor. New York’ta bulunan MoMA m羹zesinden esinlenilerek ina edilmi.

Some live performances.

Canl覺 performanslar.

There is a place where you can find any kind of art and design book at the second floor. There is also a restaurant as well.

2. katta her t羹r sanat ve tasar覺m kitab覺n覺 bulabileceiniz bir kitap tezgah覺 var. Onun hemen yan覺ndaysa b羹y羹k bir restoran.

Well it’s a big place and it took 2 hours for me to finish it.

Ortalama 2 saatin 羹zerinde zaman ge癟irdim burada.

The entrance is free.

Giri 羹cretsiz.

Some works are hard to get.

Baz覺 ileri anlamak zaman al覺yor.

And I didn’t even get the idea of some of them.

Baz覺lar覺n覺 ise pek anlamad覺m diyebilirim.

This work was pretty interesting. Artist Sam Hsieh. recorded his one year. A wall of photos showing 1 year of the artist started in April 11, 1980 till April 11,1981. He took his own pictures every day with the same clothes. He didn’t get out of that room 1 year and he lived there without any social life. He also combined all these photos to make a film of his 1 year. It’s interesting to see his hairs growing, clock turning next to him. Fast forward one year.

Sanat癟覺 Sam Hsieh’in bu ii ilgin癟ti. Kafas覺n覺 kaz覺y覺p kendini hapishane h羹cresi gibi bir yere kapatan sanat癟覺 bir y覺l boyunca hi癟 d覺ar覺 癟覺kmadan burada yaam覺 ve her g羹n 1 fotoraf覺n覺 癟ekmi. T羹m fotoraflar ve o g羹nle ilgili bilgi burada sergileniyor. Bunun d覺覺nda bu fotoraflar bir de film haline getirilmi.

Probably a designer living in that house you see in the bottom right.

Sa altta g繹rd羹羹n羹z evde muhtemelen bir tasar覺mc覺 ya覺yor.

Here I am in “Havas Worldwide”. The first day in work. I gave a cup from Istanbul to the finance director, Francisco Garcia here. He liked it :)

襤teki ilk g羹n羹m. Buran覺n finans direkt繹r羹, Francisco Garcia, ta覺d覺覺m b羹y羹k hediyelerden birini kapt覺 :) Bana iyi maa verdii ve ho bir otelde oda tuttuu i癟in biraz torpil ge癟tim :)

This is second floor. I’m a part of the Citroen team. In the left picture yousee the seatwhere I sit.

Sol fotoraf benim oturduum yer. Citroen tak覺m覺nda sanat y繹netmeni olarak 癟al覺覺yorum.

There are some small and big meeting rooms.

K羹癟羹kl羹 b羹y羹kl羹 toplant覺 odalar覺 mevcut.

And some giant ones as well.

Bir de dev toplant覺 odalar覺 var.

“Havas Woldwide” is a global network agency. They have a branch in Istanbul as well.

Havas b羹y羹k global network ajanslardan biri. 襤stanbul’da da bir ofisleri mevcut.

I didn’t kill anybody. They are all at the meeting.

Kimseyi 繹ld羹rmedim, hepsi toplant覺ya gitmi.

This is a scene from the top floor of the agecny.

Ajans覺n en 羹st kat覺ndan bir g繹r羹nt羹.

This is a restaurant in just opposite of the agency. They have a buffet and you can eat whatever you want without any limit and pay 22 reals.

Buras覺 ajans覺n hemen kar覺nda bulunan bir restoran. Benim favori yerlerimden biri 癟羹nk羹 22 real kar覺l覺覺nda s覺n覺rs覺z yemek ve i癟ecek veriyor. A癟覺k b羹fe, bol se癟enek, g羹zel ortam.

This is the cafeteria of the agency. Free tea, coffee and fruits are all here.

Buras覺 dakafeterya. S覺n覺rs覺z 癟ay, kahve ve meyve mekan覺.

Night view of Sao Paulo from my hotel room.

Otel odamdan Sao Paulo manzaras覺.

Night view of Sao Paulo from my hotel room.

Otel odamdan Sao Paulo manzaras覺.

This is Centro Velho known as “Old Town”. Probably one of the best looking and the most original places of Sao Paulo.

Buras覺 Centro Velho. “Eski ehir” olarak da bilinen bir yer. Muhtemelen Sao Paulo’nun en farkl覺 g繹r羹nen yeri.

This is the big church located in Centro Velho: “Pra癟a da S矇”.

Pra癟a da S矇 adl覺 dev kilise de burada bulunuyor.

The Pra癟a da S矇 is a public square in S瓊o Paulo, considered as the center of the town, because all the roads on S瓊o Paulo lead to this point. The square was the location of many historic events in S瓊o Paulo’s history, most notably during the Diretas J獺 movement. The name originates from the episcopal see of the city, the S瓊o Paulo Cathedral.

Pra癟a da S矇. Sao Paulo’nun ortas覺nda ehrin merkezinde bulunan b羹y羹k, geni bir meydan diyebiliriz. Buras覺 tarih boyunca 繹nemli anlara ve etkinliklere ev sahiplii yapm覺. Muhtemelen ehrin en 繹nemli noktas覺.

The streets of Centro Velho and the overall area are looking much better compared to the rest of the city. In many ways Sao Paulodisappointedme. I was expecting much more from a bigBraziliancity. But this place is just a big boring city with ugly buildings, tucked traffic and no much activities to do. It’s just a business city and I am sad that I canceled my trip to Belo Horizente just to work in big agencies here in Sao Paulo.

Centro Velho sokaklar覺 ve genel olarak bu alan Sao Paulo’nun genelinden 癟ok daha iyi ve canl覺 g繹r羹n羹yor diyebilirim. En az覺ndan kendine 繹zg羹 bir tarz覺 var. Asl覺na bakarsan覺z Sao Paulo beni 癟ok konuda hayal k覺r覺kl覺覺na uratt覺. Sonu癟ta Brezilya’n覺n en b羹y羹k ve bilinen ehirlerinden biriydi ve ben bu y羹zden beklentilerimi artt覺rm覺t覺m. Ne yaz覺k ki Sao Paulo b羹y羹k, 癟irkin binalardan oluan ve yap覺lacak 癟ok da bir aktivitenin ya da g繹r羹lecek 癟ok bir yerin olmad覺覺 s覺k覺c覺 bir metropol. 襤nsanlar burada ie gidip al覺veri merkezlerine gitmekten baka pek bir ey yapam覺yorlar. Keke Belo Horizente’den beni 癟a覺ran k羹癟羹k irketi geri 癟evirmeseydim. Sao Paulo’da 4 hafta ge癟irmek 癟ok da gerekli deilmi.

At least the weather is fine. It’s a sunny day and it’s good to have a walk around and discover places. The problem is to find them.

En az覺ndan hava g羹zel, g羹nl羹k g羹nelik.

You can see shooting for tv commercials in the streets of Sao Paulo. It’s very common. Every time I go out, I see some people shooting advertising around. This one was for Volkswagen Beetle.

Yine bir reklam 癟ekimi. Sao Paulo sokaklar覺nda gezerken bu sahneleri 癟ok kez g繹rebilirsiniz. Sokaklar reklam 癟ekimleriyle dolu. Bu seferki Volkswagen i癟indi.

This baby was there for the advertising shooting. It was looking like a brand new car just get out from the factory. I would like to have this. A lot!

Bu bebek de 癟ekim i癟in oradayd覺. Adeta fabrika’dan yeni 癟覺km覺 son model bir ara癟 kadar temizdi. 襤stiyorum.

S瓊o Paulo is the largest city in Brazil, the largest city in the southern hemisphere and Americas, and the world’s seventh largest city by population.

Sao Paulo, Brezilya’n覺n ve g羹neyyar覺mk羹reninen b羹y羹k ehri. D羹nyan覺n en kalabal覺k yedinci ehri.

The metropolis is anchor to the S瓊o Paulo metropolitan area, ranked as the second most populous metropolitan area in the America and it is among the ten largest metropolitan areas on the planet.

Sao Paulo, Metropolitan Amerika k覺tas覺n覺n en b羹y羹k ikinci, d羹nyan覺nsa en youn 10 metropolitan b繹lgesinden biri.

The metropolis has significant cultural, economic and political influence both nationally and internationally. It houses several important monuments, parks and museums such as the Latin American Memorial, the Museum of the Portuguese Language, S瓊o Paulo Museum of Art, Museum of Ipiranga and the Ibirapuera Park. The Paulista Avenue is the most important financial center of S瓊o Paulo. The city holds many high profile events, like the S瓊o Paulo Art Biennial, the Brazil Grand Prix Formula 1 Sao Paulo, Sao Paulo Fashion Week, ATP Brasil Open, and the S瓊o Paulo Indy 300. Sao Paulo hosts the world’s largest gay pride parade according to the Guinness Book of World Records.

Sao Paulo, ekonomisi ve k羹lt羹rel etkinlikleriyle d羹nyada uluslararas覺 bilinirlie sahip bir metropol. Bir 癟ok 繹nemli parka, m羹zeye ve an覺ta ev sahiplii yapan ehir ayr覺ca Grand Prix Formula 1, Sao Paulo sanat bienali, Sao Paulo Fashion week Sao Paulo Indy 300 ve Guinness rekorlar kitab覺na girmi olan d羹nyan覺n en b羹y羹k gay parade’覺 gibi etkinliklere sahip.

Traffic is much moreaggressivecompared to Buenos Aires.

Sao Paulo trafii Buenos Aires’e g繹re 癟ok daha agresif. Burada yeil yand覺覺 zaman s羹r羹c羹ler yaya ge癟idinden ge癟en yayalar i癟in beklemiyor, direkt 羹zerine s羹r羹yor.

I made a circle and came back to where I started. The church.

Yine kiliseye d繹n羹.

There was a kind ofceremonyinside. Traditional Brazillian drums, dancing people, I don’t know what was the point but I liked it.

襤癟eride anlayamad覺覺m bir seremoni vard覺. 襤nsanlar Brezilya davullar覺 eliinde dans ediyor, ark覺lar s繹yl羹yordu. G羹zeldi.

Open air bazaar of Sao Paulo.

Sao Paulo’da 癟ar覺 pazar geziyoruz.

Another day, another adventure. I am pretty alone here. I have no friends and the people in the agency don’t invite me to see or show some places. Cause they are not comfortable with English and we have acommunicationproblem always. So I’m on my own most of the time. However I created an event in couch surfing some days ago and told about my situations. Asked people to meet and go some places to do something if they are interested. And yes! :) Some people wanted to meet up. One of them was Konstantin, a 22 years old guy from Austria who was inviting me to see a snake collection. I said “yes” and we met up in front of the metro station you see in right picture.

Yeni bir g羹n yeni bir macera. Burada genelde yaln覺z覺m. Hi癟 arkada覺m yok. Ajanstakilerden de hi癟 “uraya gidelim, hadi sana buray覺 g繹sterelim” gibi teklifler gelmiyor. B羹y羹k ajanslarda genelde b繹yle oluyor zaten. Bir de dil problemi var tabi. 襤ngilizceleri iyi olmad覺覺 i癟in ya da hi癟 bilmedikleri i癟in insanlar benimle arkadal覺k edemiyor. Ben de Portekizce bilmiyorum. Olay orada t繹kezliyor. Bu dil sorunu 癟ok b羹y羹k problemlere de yol a癟覺yor zaman zaman. Ya da en basit eyi bir ikenceye 癟evirebiliyor. Ne yol tarifi alabiliyorsunuz ya girdiiniz restoran覺n men羹s羹n羹 anlayabiliyorsunuz. Ge癟en g羹n Couch surfing’de bir event a癟t覺m ve kendimden, ne yapt覺覺mdan bahsettim ve insanlar覺 buluup bir eyler yapmaya, gezmeye davet ettim. 癟, d繹rt kii cevap att覺. Bunlardan biri Konstantin. Austria’l覺 22 ya覺nda bir gen癟. Beni Sao Paulo’da bulunan bir y覺lan koleksiyonunu g繹rmeye 癟a覺r覺yordu. Ben de kabul ettim ve sa fotorafta g繹rd羹羹n羹z metro istasyonunun 繹n羹nde bulutuk.

Well, Instituto Butantan is a Brazilian biomedical research center affiliated to the S瓊o Paulo State Secretary of Health. It is located near the campus of the University of S瓊o Paulo. They have a lot of snakes here.

Butantan enst羹t羹s羹 Brezilyal覺 bir arat覺rma merkezi. Burada y覺lanlar覺n zehrinden ila癟lar, tedavi y繹ntemleri hatta kozmetik 羹r羹nler i癟in arat覺rma yap覺l覺yor.

In the internet they have written that this place is the world’s biggest snake collection with 400 different snake types.

Internette yaz覺lana g繹re buras覺, d羹nyan覺n en b羹y羹k y覺lan koleksiyonuna sahipmi ve 400′羹n 羹zerinde farkl覺 cins y覺lan varm覺.

Here is big piton at right picture. There are small ones and big ones. Many kinds of different snakes.

Brezilya’l覺 piton karde sada. Fotorafta g繹rd羹羹n羹z gibi 癟ok k羹癟羹k y覺lanlardan en b羹y羹klere kadar t羹rl羹 t羹rl羹 y覺lan burada bulunuyor.

However this place was alsodisappointedme. It was ok but it was not good enough for world’s biggest snakecollection. It wasn’t that big. And 400 snakes? No, not at all. maybe 80. I’m sure that I didn’t even see 100 snake here.

Her eyeramen buras覺 da Sao Paulo’da yaad覺覺m hayal k覺r覺kl覺klar覺na bir yenisini ekledi. Tamam ho mekan ama d羹nyan覺n en b羹y羹k y覺lan koleksiyonu laf覺 i癟in biraz s繹n羹k bir tecr羹beydi. 400 y覺lansa baya yalanm覺. Ben burada 100 y覺lan bile olmad覺覺na eminim.

Some snakes are moving much more. Especially the small ones are more active. Big snakes are usually doesn’t move so much. I think they are saving energy or they are already bored of this small cages. Some of the cages were seriously small for the big snakes.

zellikle k羹癟羹k y覺lanlar b羹y羹klere g繹re daha hareketli ve aktif. B羹y羹kler genelde k覺vr覺l覺p uyumaktan baka bir ey yapm覺yor. Bu hayvanlar ya enerji harcamak istemiyor ya da bulunduklar覺 camekandan tamamen s覺k覺lm覺lar. zellikle baz覺 kafesler b羹y羹k y覺lanlar i癟in fazlas覺yla k羹癟羹kt羹. Hayvan覺n resmen gidecek yeri yok.

Camouflage. That’s important thing for them. It reminds me the “Snake” from “Metal Gear Solid” series.

Kamuflaj 繹nemli olay. Sadaki akl覺ma Metal Gear Solid’deki karakterimiz Snake’i getirdi.

There is the team. You see Konstantin at my right. And my left is another guy who is his friend from the hostel he is staying. I can’t say his real name but I can tell his story because he said ok. When we met it was his 5th day out ofBrazilianprison. He was inside for 3 years because of drug trafficking. He was living in South Africa and using cocaine hisself. Then some people wanted to carry 2 kilograms of cocaine to Brazil. It was his first try and police hascaughthim. He was about to take 60.000 dollars from the trafficking this package. But he lost his everything. His car, his house all the furnitures he had. Now he is out and waiting for his passport to go back to his hometown, London. He is guilty and he is totally clean. He is not using any drugs after all and he got out of the prison before he expected because of his goodbehaviors. He told me a lot of stories about being in prison and the things he did when he was in orout.

Sa覺mda Konstatin’i g繹r羹yorsunuz. Peki solumdaki adam kim? O da Konstantin’in hostelden arkada覺ym覺. Ad覺n覺 veremem ama hikayesini anlatabilirim 癟羹nk羹 izin ald覺m. Biz bulutuumuzda bu dostumuz hapisten 癟覺kal覺 5 g羹n olmutu. 3 y覺l kadar uyuturucu ka癟ak癟覺l覺覺ndan hapiste kalm覺. Asl覺nda kendisi bir 襤ngiliz. G羹ney Afrika’da yaarken kokain kullan覺yormu. Bir g羹n sat覺c覺lar ona 60.000 dolar kar覺l覺覺nda 2 kilo kokaini Brezilyaya ta覺mas覺n覺 istemiler. O da kabul etmi ama havaalan覺nda yakalanm覺 ve 3 y覺l hapis yatm覺. Hapiste ge癟irdii g羹nler ve 癟覺k覺nca yapt覺klar覺yla, hissettikleriyle ilgili bana inan覺lmaz hikayeler anlatt覺. imdi hi癟 uyuturucu kullanm覺yor ve pasaportunu al覺p Londra’ya d繹nme planlar覺 yap覺yor.

Here is a place where you can learn about different bacterias andmicrobes, you can check them all with the microscope.

Buras覺 da 癟eitli bakteriler, mikroplar ve hastal覺klar hakk覺nda bilgi veren bir salon. eitli bakterileri mikroskop ile inceleyebiliyor, b羹y羹t羹lm羹 dev maketleriyle onlar覺 daha iyi anlayabiliyorsunuz.

This huge building is not aresidence. It’s another art and business hub. It’s surprising how many art galleries in Sao Paulo. But I think it’s enough of Art. I want to discover other things as well, if there is any.

Bu dev bina gene bir sanat ve i merkezi. Sao Paulo’da gezdiim kadar sanat galerisini hi癟 bir yerde gezmemiimdir. Resmen yapacak baka ey bulam覺yorum 癟羹nk羹. San覺r覺m bu kadar sanat sepet yeter.

A photo gallery inside the building. It was big. Most of the pictures were black and white.

襤癟eride dev bir fotoraf galerisi vard覺. Fotoraflar覺n 癟ou siyah beyaz ve b羹y羹kt羹.

Just near bio lab.

Bio lab’in kenar覺.

There was also one of the very firstmicroscopeof the world. Which was pretty big and heavy.

Bu da d羹nyan覺n en b羹y羹k mikroskobu. Pek b羹y羹k ve pek a覺r kendisi.

This is the MASP located in Paulista Avenue. Masp is “Museu de Arte de S瓊o Paulo” So it’s another art museum. The ticket was free because of national holiday and I have visited it. It’s about the art era romanticism. Lot’s of paintings and sculptures are inside however they don’t let people to take pictures. Maybe they are afraid of flash to damage on paintings I don’t know. Anyway, it’s worth seeing if you come to Sao Paulo.

Bu k覺rm覺z覺 bacakl覺 dev bina bir sanat merkezi, ad覺 da MASP. A癟覺l覺m覺 “Museu de Arte de S瓊o Paulo” 襤癟eride fotoraf 癟ekmek yasak olduu i癟in sizlere g繹steremiyorum ama romantizm ak覺m覺ndan tablolar ve heykeller i癟eren bu m羹ze gezmeye deer. Tabi Sao Paulo’ya gelirseniz. Bence iiniz yoksa gelmenize de gerek yok :)

Another thing about Brazil, People kissing and hugging everywhere. You see this kind of scenes everywhere.

Brezilya ile ilgili bir dier bilgi: Burada insanlar 癟ok 繹p羹羹yor, bir de her yerde 繹p羹羹yor.

A park located in Paulista Avenue.

Paulista’da k羹癟羹k bir park.

I asked people about where young people goes in Sao Paulo and they told me “Paulista” I came here and that’s the place! I was shocked. There is nothing here except the stupid buildings… I was expecting a place like “襤stiklal Street” in 襤stanbul or “Krishatik” in Kiev but no. Not at all. I wasdisappointedagain. Then I walked around the street and look around the small malls. Then I see this shop which had a remote control giant Batmobile and i jumped in.

襤nsanlara bu ehirde gen癟lerin tak覺ld覺覺 yer neresidir diye sorduumda bana Paulista’ya git dediler. Geldim bir de bakt覺m ki fotorafta g繹rd羹羹n羹z gibi burada aptal binalardan baka hi癟bir ey yok. Ne bileyim 襤stanbul’da 襤stiklal caddesi ya da Ukrayna’da Krishatik soka覺 gibi bir yer beklemitim. Sao Paulo bu t羹r bir soka覺 bile olmayan dev bir beton y覺覺n覺 arkadalar. Ne yaz覺k ki ger癟ek bu. Neyse sinirle sokakta gezerken bir d羹kkan g繹rd羹m, vitrininde uzaktan kumandal覺 dev bir Batmobile vard覺. dald覺m i癟eriye.

It was a very nice shop with full of everything I really like, games, books, comics, figures, design toys and all that kind of Otaku stuff.

Buray覺 sevdim, neden mi? 羹nk羹 benim sevdiim her eyi satan s羹per bir maaza. Oyunlar, kitaplar, 癟izgi romanlar, fig羹rler, tasar覺m oyuncaklar, neler neler.

This is the door mat I want to have for my house! Yes. My last decision. How sad I can’t buy and carry it all way long during the route.

襤te hayat覺mda ilk ve tek beendiim kap覺 paspas覺. Evime bunu almak isterdim ama ne yaz覺k ki ta覺mam m羹mk羹n deil. G繹ndersem desem bi ton para.

Superman vs. Muhammed Ali. Wow! Greatest compliment ever seen.

Hayat覺mda g繹rd羹羹m en harika iltifat, Superman Muhammed Ali’ye kar覺 癟izgi roman覺.

Ho Ho Ho Hoo! Christmas is coming! And my birthday as well. 01.01.1984.

Y覺lba覺 haz覺rl覺klar覺 tam gaz s羹r羹yor burada. Bunlar覺 g繹rd羹k癟e doum g羹n羹m羹n yaklat覺覺n覺 da hat覺rl覺yorum.

Another giant graffiti in the night of Palista Avenue.

Bir Palista gecesi dev bir graffiti daha.

There is not so much big shopping malls here like we have in Turkey. They are mostly small but a lot. The left one is a place where you think you transported to somewhere in Japan. This place is full of stuff coming from Asia. They also have fake products of almost every brand.

Burada bizdeki gibi dev al覺veri merkezlerinden ziyade k羹癟羹k k羹癟羹k ama 癟ok癟a var. Solda g繹rd羹羹n羹z yer bir al覺veri merkezi deil de bir han diyebiliriz. Buraya girdiiniz an kendinizi Brezilya’da deil de Asya’da bir yerde san覺yorsunuz. Sat覺c覺lar覺n hepsi 癟ekik g繹zl羹 ve Asya’dan gelme 羹r羹nleri sat覺yorlar. ok pahal覺 ger癟ek 羹r羹nler de var, her markan覺n ucuz 癟akmas覺 da var.

Phone booths have full of numbers of prostitutes. It’s a big business here. It’s legal by thegovernment and it’s very popular. There are even some 5 star big sex hotels where you can choose a girl from 300 girls and sleep with her in luxury rooms withJacuzziand plasma TV…

Telefon kul羹belerinde hayat kad覺nlar覺n覺n telefonlar覺 var. Fahielik burada b羹y羹k bir sekt繹r diyebilirim. H羹k羹met bunu tamamen yasal k覺lm覺. Burada 5 y覺ld覺zl覺 seks otelleri bile mevcut. 襤nternetten okuduum kadar覺yla bu otellerde 300 kadar kad覺n 癟al覺maktaym覺. S羹rekli aids testi oluyorlarm覺 ve istediinizi se癟ip l羹ks jakuzili odan覺zda kalabiliyormusunuz.

However they look quite funny and enjoyable from outside. One of my favorite things about Sao Paulo is these phone booths. Theyare always different. I don’t know who is doing these paints and designs over them but good work. Really good work.

Halbuki telefon klubeleri d覺ar覺dan pek cici, pek elenceli g繹r羹n羹yor. Sao Paulo’da en beendiim eylerden biri bu telefon kul羹belerinin s羹rekli farkl覺 tasar覺ma sahip olmas覺 oldu.

A small bazaar pops up in Sundays here.

Paulista’da pazarlar覺 b繹yle k羹癟羹k bir pazar kuruluyor.

Another nice graffiti I discovered very close to my hotel.

Otelin 癟ok yak覺n覺nda kefettiim bir baka harika graffiti.

Another thing I liked in Sao Paulo is these orange bikes. You can rent it when you see this orange stations. Then you go anywhere you want, just drop it to any other orange station and leave it. That’s awesome! We have to use this system in Turkey as well.

Burada sevdiim bir baka ey. Bu turuncu bisikletleri herhangi bir yerden kiralay覺p istediiniz yere gidiyor sonra oradaki istasyona park edip b覺rakabiliyorsunuz. Mis gibi sistem.
