I've been to Brasil twice. S. Paulo does not have mush to see, in fact, almost nothing. Go to Ilhabela (close to S. Paulo) a sanctuary for turtles. be aware of pickpockets in S. Paulo. Rio de Janeiro is beautiful. Try traveling from S.Paulo to Rio (ou vice.-versa) using the Atlântico road. Simply amizing. Visit the site http://www.planetware.com/travel/brazil-travel-guide-bra.htm. Plenty of information in English.

Try and go to the North of Brazil after spending some time in Sao Paulo/Rio. Since you have only 3 weeks, catch a flight to Fortaleza (150 eur or something), then hire a 4x4 and head West. It is very beautiful and a bit dangerous, but that's what makes it a great adventure! I did it myself and can't wait to go back there again... Next time I'm not taking laptop/digital camera though. Take care! Maya
