... prospective is simulation, to me diving is cheating, and it is time the referees just simply ignored those players or book them, it is a blight on the game.

Today, our last day in dirty smelly Rio we were too tired to do anything, so here ...

The Biggest New Year's Party in the World

... quite a fall into the rainforest. At the top we got expansive views of Rio and the city's shape became much clearer. The first explorers could quite rightly think it was a River rather than just a bay within the Atlantic Ocean. It definitely has its draw card in how the ocean, sand, forest and mountains run into each other. Copacabana beach was packed and the first of many barges were being positioned just off the coast.
