- Day 17 - Knock out gamesSo Brasilia feels quite different than Rio or Salvador. The capital was built in the middle of nowhere in the 50's & 60's. So it is spacious and open - reminds one of a more western city - Posted by wc2006 in World Cup 2014 | Jun 29, 2014

- Day 15 - Could not get thereWe just could not find any flights that worked - as it turned out with the weather, we probably would have had too much trouble trying to get there (and moving to Brasilia tomorrow). The TV stations were showing Posted by wc2006 in World Cup 2014 | Jun 28, 2014

- Day 09 - GAME DAY - Sui v FraVacation time is odd - the days seem to last forever at first, now that it is our last day in Salvador, it seems like there's so much that didn't get done.... Gwen and I finally venture out to Posted by wc2006 in World Cup 2014 | Jun 22, 2014
