Brazil's World Cup: The Worrying Starts Early
From the text: "Everybody wants to go to the party but no one wants to pay for it."
I shouldn't be writing about things i don't understand or know very little about, especially as it concerns the inner workings of corporate decisions and constructions plans.
Also, fyi, people writing in Brazil may not enjoy the say freedoms of expression as, say, our fellow bloggers do in the U.S., for example. Extreme diplomacy is called for when criticizing this, that, or the other.
However, i do think the Andrew is right in that, no, i have not seen anything remotely conducive to bigging up the conditions of those 12 stadiums slated to host the games.
Neither have i seen anything, in my hometown, so far, remotely suggestive that this is going to happen in the next 24 hours.
As much as i hate to see the fact that the authorities are depicted as inept in the article, i think there is something to be said about the lethary with which things are accomplished in our beloved neck of the woods.
But then again, when they happen, they happen with a bang! So, i will keep you posted. It should interest you if you're remotely keen on football (soccer).

Translate? No. I'm thoroughly hopeless at translation.
