World Cup begins tomorrow

Today was a day for odds and ends.  But first, my home away from home for 5+ weeks:

wc 6-11-14-3








This is the place, my room in the upper left corner.  This AM I went to town shown here:

wc 6-11-14-2

Picked up tickets for my son.  No significant lines…good news.  But also no more tickets available….bad news.  Media credentials are a multi-step process.  First, go to Maracana, the famous stadium in Rio and get the first credential, here I am getting my picture taken for the credential:

wc 6-11-14-1








Now part two at the media center is to get the media guide, bib and parking passes.

Of course, they do not have parking passes for the game in the AM.  I have to park at the stadium to get a parking pass…makes perfect sense, haha!


Tomorrow morning, 5 AM departure for Sao Paolo for the opener, Brazil v Croatia.  Allowing 9 hours for q 5-6 hour trip, crazy!!
