taking the bus in são paulo

Practical advice for taking the bus to the metro in São Paulo:

take the second one.

…yes I know,
you’re worried about being late to work-
2 hour transit is no joke- but DON’T!
Take the 2nd one: your knees and back will thank you,
As the driver takes that sharp corner,
and descends one more of those hills,
They will thank you, I tell you.

And sometimes I wish I took my own advice
and waited for the second one…
