Birds Eye View of Sao Paulo

Sao Paulo is an enormous and sprawling city. According to Wikipedia:
Sao Paulo is the largest city in Brazil, with its metropolitan area ranking seventh among the largest urban areas in the world. The city is the capital of the State of Sao Paulo, the most populous Brazilian state. It is also the richest city of Brazil. The name means Saint Paul in Portugese.

With an estimated population of 11,105,249 residents within an area of 1,523 square kilometres (588 sq mi), Sao Paulo is the most populous in Brazil, in South America and in the Southern hemisphere.
Interesting to see so many helicopters, the transportation of choice for the wealthy, flying around. Not surprising, with the traffic being so congested here.
