We caught a bus to the lower part of Avenida Paulista. On the way to the metro station we passed the cathedral for the Orthodox Church.

We took the metro back to lower Avenida Paulista to look around. We went to Casa das Rosas, an old house that is now open for the public with a nice rose garden (with few roses this time of year).
Close by was Itaú, an organization which keeps a lot of historical documents of Brazil, some on display.
We then took the metro again to the upper part of Agenda Paulista to the Museu de Arte São Paulo (MASP), which is one of the major art museums in the city. Again the purpose was to see what they had in Brazilian art in preparation for FHE.
