... and ****...
Our second day in Rio, which was a Thursday btw, was the full Brazilian experience! We started out with a chill sesh on the beach with a bunch of Israelis, an American and a Dutchman from the hostel. It was surreal swimming at a beach that we had heard about in songs and seen on TV all our lives.

We stayed at Hostel Villa Santana and paid $R70 which was in a small fan room with shared bathroom and ...

They were supporting Argentina which wasn't the problem, the problem was that they were everything you hate about the modern football fan (over the top ******* claiming they really care about the game). I knew the one trying to sing English songs to support Argentina was a Gooner as he was trying to sing a song those scum bags sing about Spurs but change it to Germany. Every Argentian hated ...

... siente..' - Argentina hadn't won in Brazil! After a bite to eat at home we headed up to Lapa. A very happy Luca and Gio joined us, also singing the song. You could really see the contrast in spirits here - very, very happy Germans and Brazilians and deflated Argentinians, although to be fair it was all in good spirit. We had a bit of a dance and hung around the streets having some more Caiprinhas before finally heading home - the World Cup finally over! Truth be told it ...
