A transit strike is wreaking havoc with public transportation in Sao Paulo, right when players and fans are arriving for the World Cup. That has led to some eye-popping waits for taxis at the new Guarulhos airport. Here’s some photos taken by Brian Winter of Reuters.

Final tally: 1 hr to get luggage/immigration, 2 hrs 20 min taxi line, 2 hr taxi ride. Obrigado, São Paulo. Boa Copa— Brian Winter (@BrazilBrian) June 9, 2014
