OTHER BRAZILIAN PEOPLE STYLES: PAULISTAS AND MINEIROS ARE NOT AS BAHIANOS AND CARIOCAS
Rather different is the spirit and the culture of a big Brazilian metropolis as Sao Paulo. Paulistas – the inhabitants of Sao Paulo – do not share the extravaganza and unplanned life of the cariocas (the inhabitants of Rio) or the friendly way of baianos (the inhabitants of Salvador and the state of Bahia). They do not share the «seize the moment, life is a Carnival, we are all in the same boat», of many other brazilians. Their relationships are more formal and distant.
And if you go further south, to zones where people are massively of European origin, or if you go to Minas Gerais region, on the inland, just an hour from Rio by plane, you will face people – the mineiros - who are also much more cautious, mistrustful or planned than Cariocas or Bahianos.
