    ... asked where exactly I was from and what I was studying, but I told him it was just for vacation. He introduced himself as Vinicius, which was kind of funny to me, considering I only know about 20 Brazilians and 2 of them have the same name. Anyhow, he was cool. Friendly as all Brazilians seem to be. Their church is amazing though, you can definitely feel the love. The pastor's sermon kept relating to the world cup of course :)

It is fair to say the Germans played extremely well, and the Portuguese played disappointingly awfully ...

    ... and stalls selling
    vegetables and some touristy stuff. I heard a few catcalls of “gringo”
    as I walked thru the crowds. A sign that, things could get worse before

    ... but they were over as quick as they started with a heavy police presence. Friday night I headed out to be popcorn with three people from the hostel, we each bought headresses and got into the mix.
