Overcrowding – Brasil é tipo assim

About 18 million people live in the metropolitan area of São Paulo and public transport can get very very crowded. Between 7am and 9am, and 5pm and 8pm public transport in São Paulo is stretched to breaking point. If you find yourself on the São Paulo metro during rush hour you’ll appreciate how a sardine feels!

All photos taken with a mobile phone.

Getting on and off a train at the same time doesn’t usually work!
