After 5 solid days of riding from Porto Alegre, Curitiba (to see the Spanish team train), Sao Paulo and eventually Rio in time for the party of an opening game, Brazil against Croatia!
Met some old rivals by riding the sidecar through about 100 Argentinians before parking in front of their moving bus on the Copacabana. Much to their delight until they realised we were England fans and out sung us!
Protesters and football fans stare at each other in bewilderment as the peacefully walk past each other.
Lots and lots of Brazilian fans (well basically every Brazilian person including a lot of non Brazilians adding their shirt to the brilliant shining yellow masses.
And of course, who can forget the Germans, always German fans!!!
