... The helpful receptionist gave us some good advice about getting to the stadium, but it is located around 20km outside the city centre. The first step in our mammoth route found us walking for 15 minutes to a local metro station in the kind of rain that soaks you through in seconds. A number of roads were flooded and a bus came to our rescue by picking us up halfway, along with a collection of Americans. Getting to the metro station may have presented us with a roof over ...

... So we bought one to find out, along with a couple of cans of Red Bull and a bottle of mineral water. Around the corner we decided to open the can of Pit˙, which had a resealable plastic lid. We took a swig and found out the hard way – it was neat cachaša. :-) So we opened one of the Red Bulls and tipped some of it in. It was different I suppose! Then we decided we’d go back to the booze stall and see what the ...
