Eddie, Magali and Frida Kahlo

Eddie from Australia and Magali from Peru are showing their friends Maria Eduarda, Nina, Miguel and Fofo about today's adventures in São Paulo. They went to Tomie Ohtake Institute in order to visit Frida Kahlo exhibition.

It is not difficult to get to the institute, we just have to take the tube. The next station for us is Vila Matilde, red line. In República station we change to yellow line and leave at Faria Lima station. Tomie Ohtake Institute is a few blocks from the station. 
Learn more about tube stations  in São Paulo on  http://www.metro.sp.gov.br/en/your-trip/index.aspx. The stations are normally clean and easy to find, but most of them are really crowded at rush hour.

Magali and Eddie learned a lot about Frida Kahlo at the exhibition. You can also learn from Frida Kahlo foundation: http://www.frida-kahlo-foundation.org/biography.html
