If you have any interest in seeing a game in Rio, please go with Sergio! My boyfriend and I were in Rio last month and we couldn't have asked for a better guide to show us the sights and sounds (and colorful songs ;) of Maracana... it was the highlight of our trip and I only wish we had time to take in another game! Feel free to email me if you want an outside recommendation (allisonhammond at and Sergio - we hope you will make it to the west coast of North America sometime soon - and if so, please look us up! Hope all is going well, thanks again!
