Maracanã (official) visit

Posted by on 22/02/2014

I ended my time in Rio in style by visiting the Estádio do Maracanã at the invitation of Odebrecht, the construction company that renovated the stadium ready for the World Cup. What an amazing experience! Thanks to Amelia for organising and Luis for showing me around. And to Nadia for the lift & food!
