City of God

... played drums from start to finish - we got seats with the home fans so we would be right in the middle of things. I can say I watched about 10 minutes of football the rest was watching what everyone else was up to! I don't know if I'd go to another match but the atmosphere was great!

The game was a bit slow, no one did all that much in the first half, though the action picked up in the second half. Eventually, Belgium scored, off an assist from Eden Hazard (Man of the Match), and the crowd went wild.

We leave the game and head back to the ...

Rio catches World Cup fever

... is significantly warped - I'm still the only girl in my dorm and many of the British lads here seem to have spent their days hanging around the Copacabana Palace hotel in the hope they'll catch a glimpse of the England football team. But you can't fail to notice the tell-tale signs that not all Brazilians have welcomed the World Cup to their country with open arms. Protesters had erected anti-World Cup signs and a replica favela on Copacabana ...
