SESCs are one of the best inventions in the world! The „Serviço Social do Comécio“ (SESC) is an initiative of a merger of social service, trading investors and tourism with the aim to provide access to culture to everyone. For instance in São Paulo, every neighborhood has its own SESC. They organize events, talks, discussions, concerts, and activities in the fields of education, culture, health and a lot more, offer free classes of yoga and other sports, childcare, and assistance. All for free! Every time, I am in São Paulo, I am impressed again by the wide range and quantity of offers. Not to forget about the food. The Brazilian metropolis turned into an expensive city, not so the SESC. The cafeteria offers amazing food: One meal oft he day for 9 Reais, amazing ice cream, snacks and those deserts….yummy! I have to go there every day to try all of them- there is only one word for it: delicious!
The one I use to frequent is the SESC Paulista. This one has another benefit: On the top, there is a terrace which turned into a famous outlook. The view of the city, the Paulista is great and furthermore, it`s a nice place to get some sun in this city full of skyscrapers and shady streets. Just yesterday, I saw an awesome sunset there!
Thanks for existing, SESCs!
