Yesterday the Olympic Torch Relay came through our little city of Sobradinho in the middle of nowhere Brazil. It was a grand event with marching bands and parading horses. There were booths and tents with displays of local art and cuisine. There were singing school children and lots of military police.
It was exciting to see and enjoyable in spite of the long wait.
Hopefully Brazil can rally together and pull this global event off in style! Our little town spent lots of money to spruce itself up and to make sure the celebration was grand.
