Good luck, Brazil!
Today is the first match day of the 20th FIFA World Cup Quarter-finals and huge party time in Brazil. I can’t imagine how crazy FIFA Fan Fest Copacabana will be tonight. I was lucky to join the Copacabana beach crowd during a group-stage match of Seleção – Cameroon v Brazil (1:4) on June 23rd. The experience was simply fantastic! Picture yourself in a crowd of fifty thousand people wearing yellow t-shirts with a number “10” on their backs… and now picture that “number” scoring two goals within the first 35 minutes of the World Cup game!… I really hope that today the Team Neymar will turn Copacabana beach into a samba celebration again. Let’s go, Selecao!

I bet Brazil is going nuts! We went to the France-Nigeria game here in Paris the other day and it was intense but so fun to be a part of. I am seriously nervous about tonight’s game when France faces Germany…gulp!

OK Memo, you’re having way too much fun in Brazil – but why not? They apparently know how to show team and country pride/support. Kudos!

Thanks, Maria! It’s never “too much fun in Brazil”. It’s always “just right” [smile]
