Everything World Cup

This is for Nicola, who's mentioned The World Cup recently. We'll certainly have many other pictures on World Cup. Such a fever. Bunnies, bracelets, flags, purses, everything is yellow, blue and green these days. This picture was taken on Avenida Paulista, that you've seen here a couple of times, after having had lunch with Marcos.

A friend from the States who doesn't understand the first thing about soccer asked me if Brazil's supposed to win this year. The answer is: Brazil's supposed to win every time. There has never been a time we thought Brazil didn't stand a chance. The country stops to watch Brazilian soccer team games. We'll go as far as having TVs in our workplaces so the staff can watch them. Nobody expects life to go on as normal during the World Cup.

SP fact: We have more than 70 shopping malls in the city, more than any other city in Brazil.

Actually, people from other cities make fun of people from SP - they say our idea of fun is going to the shopping mall.

for s9ome reason, this pic reminds me of a friend I have from Sao Paulo - Lele - her real name is Alexandra - there must be a lot of people with that name?
