Airport Adventures: São Paulo Congonhas Airport

by a traveller

They said to the security guard we were from Deutschland waiting for a private jet

"Once, I and a friend went on a budget travel to Brazil.  We went to São Paulo by bus, and firstly we thought we can sleep in Tiete Central, but was a dangerous place, full of "trombadinhas" (thieves), and piss smell so we went by taxi to Congonhas Airport. There we were safe, the people was mainly executives waiting for their internal flights or company private jets. When an officer asked us what we was doing there, we started to talk half french, half english. The poor guard only could speak portuguese, and called some United Airlines or American to translate.  SHIT!!!. We have to talk English to the English speaking UA employees asking for mercy. They said to the security guard we were from Deutschland waiting for a private jet or some shit like that. The airport was 10 points, good bathrooms, nice coffee. Recommended."
