Porto Alegre


Watched Brazil tie with Mexico today. Although there was a lack of goals, the streets were full of people watching the game. Walked home afterwards and everything was closed. Some were fully closed while others just locked the doors and all the employees huddled around a tv. Brazilian futbol is a serious thing down here.
