Snow in Brazil

Post by mongrel hawk on Tue Jul 23, 2013 4:30 pm

It snowed in Curitiba (one of the WC venues) today. See story: http://g1.globo.com/pr/parana/noticia/2013/07/instituto-confirma-neve-em-curitiba-e-regiao-metropolitana.html

It's normal to snow in the hill towns in southern Brazil, but not in the state capitals.

So Paulo now is 11 C at noon, around 6 during the night.

In the north, though, the WC venues are always beach-hot, even in the winter, as EMP may confirm.

The problem in this WC won't be the hot weather, but the different weathers in the same country.

That, and getting the stadiums built on time. The paint was still wet at the Maracana for the Confed Cup.

It'll be fine, people always worry that stadiums won't be ready in time. If a monumental shithole like South Africa can host a world cup then so can Brazil.

I'm just pissed they won't bring the WC back to the US. It would help make football even more popular. The '94 still holds the record for average attendance, and most attended, even though it was before the expansion to 32 teams.

Well you're more likely to see a world cup than the English are.

It's not coming back to England for a long time, but when it does it will be a sell out for every game.

Might sell out every game, but the US would sell out every game too, and the stadiums here are HUGE in comparison to England.

No one thinks the US doesn't deserve a world cup ahead of Qatar, but don't start comparing with England. <Ale>

So, first batch of ticket are on sales. Thinking about taking a shot in the lottery.

Any suggestions for which region I should apply? Thought about Curitiba because I might visit some emigrants of my family in that region (over hundred years ago, somebody in my home village still have contact from time to time now) or go for a metropole like Rio/Paulo or for the adventure that is Manaus.

It was summer in the north of Brasil when I was there last, but may well be finding out how hot it is in the winter in Brasil first hand soon.

South Africa is not a monumental shit-hole, but it was the wrong African country to host the World Cup.

They're not putting a roof on one of the stadiums because they wouldn't have time.

Have you seen Louis Theroux's episode about crime in Johannesburg? It certainly seemed like a shithole.

There is more to that country than one city and more accurately parts of it. Not that interested in Theroux's opinions on anything. As Danny Jordaan says there is crime everywhere.

If you go with an agenda and only show what suits your agenda, you will create the impression your agenda wants. Panorama did exactly that to Poland and Ukraine.

No it doesn't. Honduras is almost three times as high. El Salvador is almost double. Not even the highest in Africa. Not the highest in southern Africa. Who are you trying to kid?

Almost 30 times the murder rate of the UK, 6 times the murder rate of the US. They're even comfortably higher than Mexico.

Depends where. I went walkabouts in Gauteng, which is supposed to be unsafe, well after midnight and had no problems at all. Still interesting that Ivory Coast is almost double the rate of South Africa and Honduras three times as high, but that doesn't even get a mention. I've been to South Africa twice and never felt in danger. And don't forget idiots like Pistorius' contribution to crime rates.

That's true. But according to their past actions their targets would be So Paulo State police, and not the fans and supporters.

That bloke looks like Dunga...perhaps he wants revenge!

Anyway, It's weird all those anti-safety comments from an American, cause if there is one nation that looks like Brazil it's the USA.

Nothing will happen to the people there, perhaps an STD but that's it.

Another death at a WC Stadium in Brazil. They're almost catching up to Qatar in death totals.
