There was absolutely no doubt! Gunshots! My God they are starting a revolution. They were shooting all night and people were screaming and shouting. That was our first night i Rio and we knew it wasn't the carneval.Leaving the room wasn't easy but it had to be done sooner or later. There was still quite a lot of noise in the streets so I wasn't feeling to good about the whole situation. I went down to the reception and tried to ask about the 'revolution'.
The guy was really upset, which I interpreted as if our assumptions about the revolution were right.But no it was all about 'Footeball and Carneval'. Apparently Rio had lost an important match against Recife. And the fans form Recife were running around in the streets partying or basically humiliating the losers - RIO.
This went or for about three days.Our plan was to go up the coastline to Belem and then Manaus. That's a long way - too long to tell you the truth.
But one thing was the long distance another thing was traveling with Nanna my old friend from school. The thing about Nanna is that she not blond she is more than that - she's got white long hair. Its beautiful that's true but the reaction we got[she got, sorry!] was unbelievable. They all and that was all men[mostly men] but children and women shouted something like SHOO-shuh or something like that.Whenever we went out Nanna or SHOO-shuh was so popular that it somehow became a bit of a problem for us. But we had a lot of free drinks so the moral was kind of 'double' and so were most of the drinks so it went on.
SHOO-shuh turned out to be some Brazilian tv-celebrity and her true name was Xuxa I think. And of course she didn't look like Nanna at all apart from the fact they were both superblond.The truth is it wasn't all free drinks because of the SHOO-shuh look-a-like thing. In the harbor of Belem some angry woman walked right up to SHOO-shuh and burned her on the shoulder with a cigarette.
So all the free drinks came with a price. But we had a great time. BRAZIL!!!
