The world needs more people like him. Check at the bottom of this post for the story. After ...
... to grab some food. We end up at another bottequim where we grab sandwiches, nice solid misto quente (ham and cheese) along with getting some caipirinha, the national drink of Brazil. Love the drink, not sure what is in it, but love it. Following the little pick-me-up meal, we head back to the apartment where we get changed into our USA gear, cause tonight, its USA vs Ronaldo (aka Portugal).
