First week of the World Cup 2014 (In São Paulo)

I was in Brazil for the first week of the World Cup, and I said that I would write a blog post every single day that I was there. However, I got so caught up with all the on-goings there that I never got round to doing so.

In the end, I didn't end up watching a game at the stadium because my trip was kinda last minute and football wasn't the main purpose of my trip. By the time I even considered watching a game at the stadium all the tickets were sold out and impossible to get. Boo :(

So I went to Vila Magdalena (which is a really cool neighbourhood with lots of bars, restaurants and beautiful, young people) to watch the opening match with my fiancé, Thiago.

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, so I´ll let the pictures (and the video) speak for themselves.

The Havaianas store on Oscar Freire, selling flip flops according to the teams that qualitifed :)

A couple walking their dogs. Very festive indeed :)

The opening match started at 4pm and people were already hitting the bars decked out in their green and yellow from noon.

Here is a video which shows the reaction of the Brazilians when their team scored a goal
