Hi Simon and friends!
Actually, I don´t live in São Paulo city. I live in a city 50 km far from there called Mogi das Cruzes.
So, it doesn´t take me much time to go to São Paulo. As a matter of fact, it depends on the place where you go. For instance, if you want to go to Pinacoteca, it takes you 30 minutes to get there by train.
Although we´re near São Paulo, my city still manages to keep its countyside characteristcs. The religion traditions are very strong around here. One of the most important events of the city is a 300 years party before Pentecost. Apart form that, the air is fresher and you´re able to see the stars during the night. A real balsam for those who spend the whole day working at the chaotic but extremelly charming city of São Paulo.
Well, if on one hand Mogi has been seeing the growth of the industry, on the other hand the agricultural market is still strong as ever. The city is responsible for the distribution of vegetables and green leaves for all the state. Which by the way it´s wonderful for us here, because we can buy vegetables and fruits for a very good price :-).
Anyway, Simon, I´ve just remembered of another good Brazilian musician, Marcelo D2. He does a mixture of rythms, like rap and samba. I´ve sent to a friend of mine, Carmen ( I´m glad you´ve like D2 :-) ) a video of one of his song "Gueto" ( Ghetto). If you have the opportunity to browse on the YouTube you won´t regret. It´s pretty cool :-)
Friends, I love reading your comments. Thanks a lot for sending them :-).
Amy, it´s so nice to see your comment here :-)! Well, I´ll sit for the exam in the beginning of December. This month I have to go to the English centre in order to do my enrollment.
Marco, nice to see you here too :-). Ooh... I think you would be a good blogger. Why don´t you have a go?
Maurício, it´s nice to see you on the blogs again :-). I´t was really interesting to read about your CAE experience. This exam is my go, but as I don´t have English enough to take it I´m starting with the FCE. By the way, you live in Rio de Janeiro state, don´t you?
Hi Monica, I´ve come to know the FCE exam has changed. Therefore, we´re facing some difficults in finding mock tests to practise because of the changes of the test. Do you know something? My teacher says the same to me and my classmate. Reading is the best way to improve :-). Anyway, I´d just like to say that I really look up to you. I was always stunned when I read your comments on teacher Stephen blogs. Your English is fabulous. I wish one day I colud have a bit of your knowledge :-).
Hey Niddo! I´m glad you´ve become a Vander Lee fan :-).
