MASP

After the usual cheap all you can eat buffet for lunch. Its $15 reais for all you can eat (a small place in Vila Olimpia). Bargain for all you can eat. And hey if you are of the female persuasion, its even cheaper.

I was going to head on over to Parque Ibirapuera but the weather turns to absolute mush. So I instead make my way to MASP. Or the Museo de Arte de Sao Paulo. 

The museum is housed in a pretty epic building on Avienda Paulista and is opposite the Trianon Park. Underneath here on the weekends are some markets too. The building is one of the ‘architecture delights’ of Sampa, though it looks like it could use a lick of paint.

To get inside, it will cost you $15 reais, and this includes the use of a locker for your bag.

Inside, its pretty awesome. The outside might look a tad worn down, but on the inside, it is modern and fresh. There are several exhibitions on – and all take a fair bit of time to wander through. The collection is definitely one of the better museums, and a few surprise artworks including some Monet’s, Rembrandt’s and Van Gough’s.

Afterwards, I’ve got the museum drain. That sleepy feeling from being in a museum for too long. So I hit up the cafeteria downstairs for a coffee (lacklustre considering its Brazil) but it does perk me up and I head on out to Av Paulista.

Only to be confronted by more rain. So its back to the hostel and a quiet evening. Suprised? I certainly am.
