On a completely separate note

The final of the Libertadores is coming up. Flamengo, my team from Brazil, will be taking on River Plate from Argentina. |
I hope you all will be able to give Mengao a cheer on. One of the first things that surprised upon arriving in Rio was how much the Brazilians hate the Argies. Around Copacabana and the bay are several gun emplacements and when I asked why they were there, I was told by more than one person...To keep the Argentinian tourists out!
There are 2 border towns renowned for Brazil Argentina games. The winners drive over the border in their pick ups waving flags and setting off fireworks while the locals take pot shots at them with real guns. Proper rivalry!
So come on Flamengo - do the Argies!
