FOOTBALL IS A RELIGION AND FLAMENGO IS A NATION



It is not my team I have to admit, but Flamengo is everywhere when we walk in the narrow alleys of any favela, in this case we were in the Community of Santa Marta. Mikki and Atti came here from Israel.


We had a fabulous time with a closer look into our poor communities, they are poor, it is clear but there is a fascinating happiness going on in any Favela we go.


Friendship, smiles and curiosities are always present in the tours!


Football (Soccer as people know in the States) is something that makes all social levels united and it is present also in WALL ARTS that we foten see when we walk everywhere in Rio.


NAÇÃO RUBRONEGRA means RED AND BLACK NATION, those are the colors of Flamengo Football team which holds the biggest fans in Brazil, not only here in Rio!


VIVA is when you scream out loud LONG LIFE FOR!!!


SO VIVA RIO!!!! :)
