Campinas and Hollambra, Brazil

I went to visit a good friend who lives in Campinas, Brazil. It's about 1.5 hours away from Sao Paolo and I don't think it's a big tourist attraction but to live and work, it was a really nice city.

 Typical grocery store
Capybaras...the world's largest rodent, but so freaking cute!

In Campinas, there is a huge lagoon called Parque Portugal. We walked around the lagoon, but unfortunately the swan paddle boats were closed for the day. Instead, we took the train!

We also took a day trip to a little town called Holambra, a town founded by Dutch people (Holland and Brazil = Holambra). There's not tons to do there except walk around, have a beer and lunch but it was really fun.
