Jim Walsh, Our Travel Co-ordinator has filed this second report from Brazil to keep us up to date with the first four days of his World Cup adventure.
Day 5 – we’ve booked a seaplane flight for the afternoon. After breakfast we chill by the pool, watching a tropical rainstorm in the distance.
We decide to watch the Germany Portugal game in the bar at the next hotel. Very nice.
Germany look strong but surely that wasn’t a pen and what would Captain Mainwaring have made of Mullers cheating!!
Straight after the game we’re off on our seaplane trip – a small, noisy, five seater.
Another fantastic trip and a great way to see the Amazon.
The pilot must realise we’re England football fans and does a slight detour for great aerial views of the stadium.
In the evening we head down town and the square by the opera house to watch USA v Ghana. Loads of septics in the square with their imaginative
chant of U S A U S A.
Budweiser zone before our 4 hour flight to São Paolo.
