It's been one week since the World Cup kicked off and it's been fantastic! The atmos is up-lifting and the energy from the international mix of tourists is infectious. I love it. My parents are here and we've been making the rounds between the Fan Fest and my go-to buteco bars and restaurants for the matches. Wanted to share with you our first week in pics.
For the opening ceremony we went to a massive screen set-up outside the Fan Fest and we set-up a picnic on Copacabana beach.
|face painting...always a crowd pleaser|
Unfortunately we missed the opening ceremony and the crowd thought the screen was broken. Eventually we found out that the screen was not allowed to show it, something to do with advertisers. So when the screens finally turned on for the first match, we all went crazy. Phew!
That night we had the most amazing moon.
Hub told me to try and capture the magic on video of a Brazil goal. Boom!
Celebrating Brazil's win with fire crackers, as you do.
And inside the FIFA Fan Fest on Copacabana beach...
Met this cute English guy at the Fan Fest. I saw sparks.
And there you have it folks. It's been great and wish you were here.
