Bauru is located near the geographical centre of São Paulo State. Due to this it has been an important commercial centre since its foundation in the middle of 1800's when all train rails passed by that area. Today Bauru has approximately 350.000 inhabitants, important universities (USP, UNESP, and USC), and it is considered as an example of prosperity and wealthy in country side of São Paulo State.
The last time I went to Bauru was in 1997 for a Conference. Since then I miss its nightlife full of opportunities for joying life, having fun, and making friends.
