World Cup! Samba! What more does one have to say! Our sports pilgrimage to this beautiful country, though short, was mesmerizing. From the swinging Samba rhythms in Salvador to the unbelievably scenic island of Morro de Sao Paulo to the big mish-mash that Rio urbanscape presents. A boteco - roadside restaurant - at the square near our hotel in Rio, with cheap yet tasty food and drinks ( what caipirinhas! ) remains in my memory. Especially with it hosting a local Brazilian band playing Brazilian tunes unknown - gently swaying rhythms at one time and then tunes so melodious as to beckon you to sing. Indeed, I did join the audience singing around the band as they played through the night.

A sports pilgrimage turned into a cultural experience.
