People from the city of São Paulo are known as paulistanos. The city's motto is Non ducor, duco, which translates as "I am not led, I lead". A famous nickname for the city is "Sampa".

São Paulo is also known for its unreliable weather, traffic jams, the sheer size of its helicopter fleet which we experienced first hand, architecture and multitude of skyscrapers.
