Last Wednesday, it was São Paulo’s 458 anniversary.
I always knew I lived in a HUGE city and I also knew people that are outsiders always have a love and hate relationship with the city.
I read this article on Veja Magazine with fun facts about the city and I thought it would be fun to share with all of you.
The city has 1.523.278 square meters (16396427.931 square feet).
There are 570000 lamps around town.
The city farmers market has 12600 square meters (135625.271 square feet).
On this space, there are 11.2 million people, 2.5 million dogs, 562000 cats and more than 07 million cars.
More than a million pizzas are eaten per day in the city, which means 732 slices per minute.
São Paulo drinks 30 million cups of coffee per day.
In 2010, it was made 1604 kidney transplants and 598 liver transplants.
In 2010, there were 62989 weddings, 8904 divorces, 186.119 births and 77289 deaths.
I guess with all these numbers, I should change my blog name to Life in a HUGE city ; )
