... There is all sorts of world cup stuff everywhere though, from souvenirs to ads to commercials, so that's neat. Only 45 more minutes til the flight leaves! There is a very attractive Brazilian boy sitting across from me. Most Brazilians are very attractive though.

Beers consumed: Bohemia, Devassa
Anj and Nayan
