Ah these are pictures I found not yet in my blog, and reminds me of driving in big beautiful Sao Paulo State of Brazil!!! The post is in memory of those friends who drove me, let me drive their cars, and always there when needed. On the road in Sao Paulo State of Brazil!!!

I had the opportunity over the years to visit many many times the country and once even lived there in the State of Paranà, learning the language. I would love to tell you about my road warrior thrills in the State of Sao Paulo. I visited the capital city of the State , Sao Paulo in one of my first ever visit to Brazil back in around 1988, and of course, always landed at the Guarulhos airport.

The Rodovia Fernão Dias (Highway) is the name given to the BR-381 in the stretch between two Brazilian metropolitan regions: Grande São Paulo and Grande Belo Horizonte. It was only in 1961 that the highway been fully completed, with the completion of works on the São Paulo stretch. The trafic passing through the BR-381, represent an average circulation of more than 15 thousand vehicles , between buses, trucks and cars per day. In addition, 25% of the population of Minas Gerais lives and works in its area of influence.
