Street Vendors


Some street food vendors from the game. The popular food here is 2 hotdogs inside a huge bun, filled with peas, corn, a Brazilian cheese, potato chip straws, and condiments. Tasty.



Finally in Brazil. Watched Argentina beat Bosnia last night and looking forward to Germany stomping Portugal today. I should have known they were playing before I wore my Germany jersey through the Portugal airport and didn’t understand all the dirty looks I was getting.
