I’m Back Again

Hi, I’m back after several weeks, it is quite hard to save some time for hobbies as writing a blog since I have been obliged to work on another blogs and also I need to work.

One month ago I have been to Joao Pessoa (John the Person) – the coastal city in the North East with the lowest temerature 20 Celsius degrees as one native said. The city was amazing, population abut 1 mio habitants, almost no foreign tourists even this is gonna be changed in the near future. The airport, all the infrastructure, beatifull beaches, bars and restaurants will make this place popular. Also the fact that you are in the most eastern point in Brazil makes this place unique. The amazing architecture of Oscar Niemeyer is also here! Will post separate article about this trip.

As I was complaining how dry it is here two months ago, today it is completelly different – only rains.. The man has to be clever when thinking what to do during the day, especially when needs to go out. Usually the rain starts in the afternoon but it is quite common when is raining all day long.

Since Brasilia has very large and well located city park with many places where you can do exercise under the sky I started to take advantage of that and I’m going even to run or make same exercising there. It has several round paths from 2 to 10 km with many kiosks where you can buy “agua de coco” or another refreshments or drink a water for free or use a toilet. The park is well organized and all Brasiliense are proud of it. I can tell you brazilians like running so much so  sometimes the park is so full that you feel as in the marathon run – good for motivating of weaker runners :-). Will post separate article about this park and relation of the people here to the wellness, really amazing.

As I sad it is raining quite often I go to park before the rain but the temperature at this time is not pleasant at all. But it is just about a training – usually there is about 30 degrees but couple of days ago I made a 6 km run in 40 degrees huh…Here is the proove:

Also check my results in kilometrage for the last months, I am proud of my record almost 150km in October! Only the time is my enemy :-)

Defending the Football Referee

See how the security defend a football referee against the host fans known as Os Fanaticos after the end of the football match. He ordered a penalty in the 91th minute on the playground of hosts in Curitiba. The host team needed to win but after that penalty was result 1:1 so that is why “os fanaticos” wanted to fight..

Homen do Futuro

Last time I went to cinema to watch a new movie “Homen do Futuro” – A Man from the Future…Really funny comedy about travelling in the time machine and of course love, I really reccommend it to everybody!

Romantic comedy full of humour with Wagner Moura (Tropa do Elite / Ellite Squad) and Alinne Moraes. I didn’t know Wagner Moura is so good actor, he is so comedian :-)) I like this kind of brazilian humour. It deserves to be known outside of Brazil.

The director of Homen do Futuro, Claudio Torres made another comedy “Mulher Ivisivel” – Invisible woman which is also so good. I reccommend it!

Also it has a good soundrack with R.E.M., Radiohead, Legion Urbana etc.. Here is the link for the movie website with a music http://www.ohomemdofuturo.com.br/.

 

 

Brazilian Footbal Fans

To see a brazilian footbal match is really nice experience…but it is laways better to visit it with some local friend..In 2005 went in Curitiba to see Atletico Parana club, here is some pictures:

This video I made on my phone when watchin TV…See how the security defend a football referee against the host fans known as Os Fanaticos after the end of the football match. He ordered a penalty in the 91th minute on the playground of hosts in Curitiba. The host team needed to win but after that penalty was result 1:1 so that is why “os fanaticos” wanted to fight. Just an example of an attitude to a football security in Brazil.

Something About Football

Yesterday football “Superclassico das Americas” Brazil vs Argentina result is 2:0. Since Brazil hosts the FIFA World Cup 2014, nobody doubts about the new world cup champions. See the best moments of the match here:

 

Here is another video from the recent match with Argentina – just a trick of the player Leandro Damiao, how confident he is:

 

It is neccesary to admit that to see a brazilizan home championship footbal matches is very much more fun comparing to a football league for example in Czech republic which is simply to say – very very boring.. I am starting to be a footbal fan but it is only becouse here is something to look at! Also listen to a moderators how they anjoy the game. It seems that thouse ours comment a chess game and not football…

Here you can see the new star of brazilian football Neymar (he is only 19 years old!) playing for Santos club and his tricks:

 

 

Personal Dog

Today I watched in TV news a reportage about a kind of small businesses type of personal care. Brazilians come out with similiar jobs but they call it funny way. They start everything with a word “personal” and then just add a translated word for object of their activity. Personal care they say the same way – “personal care”..but they also have a personal home, personal car, personal dog and and who knows what else…

So here is what are these jobs about, just need to say the service can be more complex and also of very high level:

personal care = personal care

personal car = a person who takes your car for a technical inspection (…they charge apporx. 40 EUR/hour guys..)

personal home = repairer

personal dog = dog walker

OK today is footbal match Brazil x Argentina held here in Brazil, in Belem..I am going to watch it on TV..last time in Argentina it was 0:0 so vamos ver hoje :-)…
