Where are the Brazilian flags?

May 31st, 2014 by

The Brazilian flag flying high above the Sao Paulo training ground is one of only a few we have seen in Brazil so far. This morning we talked to an old man selling Brazilian flags road-side at an intersection. ¨How are flag sales going¨we asked. A man had asked him the same question yesterday. He told the man that no one was buying flags. ¨I`ll buy 100 flags on Monday, and burn them all¨ came the angry reply.
People here are angry. Angry at FIFA. Angry at the corruption of their politicians. Strange time to be in Brazil.
