Brazil at South Africa World Cup

Yesterday was the first match of Brazil at the South Africa World Cup against North Corea. Soccer is our national sport and the game was played at 3:30pm local time. Workers were allowed to leave the office 2 hours before the game and schools and commerce were closed. I took these pictures in the center area of Sao Paulo where a huge TV were installed and around 50,000 people followed the game in this place.

  1. My wife and I are hosting a bbq for some Brasilian friends on Sunday during the game. I'm Looking forward to it. Closing work places and shops so everyone can watch the football. That's what I call getting straight your priorities.

    Nice shots by the way. I love the second one with the flag, really graphic.
