World Cup Photo Dairy: Ready for the Big Day

All is set for the final game here in Rio with close to 100,000 thousands Argentinian fans invading this city and especially the beach at Copacabana, the majority of them will not be able to be at the stadium since the tickets are going on resale for anywhere between $10,000 and $15,000 each. Another disappointment for the World Cup host after losing to Holland. I was able to get together with an old friend, Shakira who will be the headliner of the closing ceremonies at Maracana Stadium. Artist Romero Britto is throwing a big party at what he calls the most beautiful mansion in Rio, located in the Santa Teresa neighborhood.
