On my recent trips to Brazil I brought Mike and Cooper back soccer jerseys. Shelby got Brazil bracelets and a mini vuvuzela (those really annoying horns everyone is blowing all the time, at every game … making your head feel like it’s gonna explode). Shelby has been blowing her vuvuzela non-stop. I might have to hide it from her until the next game!
We have been watching a lot of soccer at our house. We’ve never really watched much soccer, but with my current project sending me to Brazil lately … we’ve been embracing the soccer (or football as they call it) culture of South America. This last trip to Rio I was able to watch Brazil play North Korea among all the millions of other soccer fans in Brazil. I stay on Copacabana Beach when in Rio and there was some 20,000 fans on the beach watching the game at the FIFA Fan Fest tent. Pretty cool, eh?
