Re: Brazil after the World Cup. What?
"rosaly.interview" <firstname.lastname@example.org> escreveu: The World Cup in Brazil was a scene of protests but as good will too. Germans proved that. The soccer team had fun and entertained locals from Santa Cruz de Cabralia, Bahia. They paid local people to do few works for them just to give some extra help. And they had laugh moments in restaurants, with kids, and even have beaten Brazil with a hard-to-deal-with 7x1, a crowd said good-bye to them maybe with most satisfaction that if was Brazil who won. After all, bills to pay, and a return to the routine. Looks like not much has change in brazilian schedule since Panamerican Games in 2007. Agenda was low, belated and expensive. Did they enjoyed the structures to promote sports among brazilians? No. For World Cup, it was easy to celebrate games in expensive stadiums. But empty needs rest for population complaints. Now, the phocus is on Rio 2016. Will Brazil do everything on time? Or belated? Will athletes have their needs met before all starts, or only the expensive sponsorship will be enough for some? Will other brazilians have the pleasure to experience sports in Brazil? Or the legacy will be a big lack again? Can anyone dial B-R-A-Z-I-L? (Rosaly Bastos, Brazil)
