I haven’t been too much connected in the past weeks, and that’s because here, at my home, we are not only enjoying the World Cup, we have been breathing World Cup!!!
Since World Cup begin we are all of us (my husband, my son and myself) on vacation. My husband got work vacation and my son is on his school holidays, so we could enjoy together the advantages of having a World Cup happening on our home country.
There is so much happening I would like to share with you guys in those past days, but as we’re living this World Cup marathon, following the games on TV and watching some of them on the stadiums I didn’t have too much free time to blog.
But I will try to summarize what we have been doing in the last week:
1. We were in Maracanã for France vs. Ecuador game. We were supposed to support Ecuador team, as we are trying to support the south americans. My son even painted the colors of Ecuador on his face, but when we found out that our seats were in the middle of the Les Bleus, and that near our seats there were a family with two cute boys supporting France and singing very lively “Allez Les Bleus”, my son asked me to erase Ecuador colors from his face and paint the colors of France on his cheeks. Although the game ended 0x0 and there wasn’t too many exciting moments we had a lot of fun. It is being a very rich experience to see different people supporting their national teams.
2. On thursday we took a flight to Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais to watch Brazil vs. Chile at Mineirão Stadium. But before the game, on friday we had the oportunity of visiting Inhotim, an open air contemporary art museum, where you can breath pure air and enjoy nature and art at the same location. Later I will publish a dedicated post to it.
