Photographer's Note

This is probably the most famous beach in the world and this is the side towards Leme, in continuance to my yesterday's post.
You can see clearly the little hill where on its top is located the historical Forte Duque de Caxias.
Also, the familiar calçada portuguesa, the portuguese pavement, the comfortable bike lane, the goalposts of several football terrains where everybody can play and practice on a 24/7 basis and of course the extension of the marvelous beach.
You can also see a huge screen on the left hand side and this is the FIFA Fan Fest headquarters where soccer fans from all over the world have come here to share this incredible experience of the World Cup.
I personally have seen several matches here due to the fact that it is impossible to fly to the other cities and see all matches played.
Shortly, the big final will take place at the Maracaná and this will be the greatest emotion to watch the final in this legendary stadium!!then after all is done and over with, we'll sing, we'll dance and we'll party!!!
Being here has a huge significance for me for many reasons.
Football unites the world, people with different traditions and culture are here to share the same great event, to celebrate in the same way and to convey the same hopes.
Patriotism is growing strong with the deepest feelings resulting from football.
So, today, here in Rio de Janeiro, the fiesta of football will end and then we all have to go back to where we came from, carrying with us all the beautiful memories of this very surprising and very dramatic World Cup!!!
