Andrew, good afternoon
I just read your blog for the 1st time. Congratulations!
Please continue your investigation about Ricardo Teixeira, FIFA, Corinthians and brazilian Government, because our Country needs the international press to avoid that the poor people money goes to wrong hands. Everybody knows here that this Itaquera Stadium is going to be built with Government money.
President Lula (Corinthians most famous fan)ask a construction company called Odebrecht to built it, but the numbers that they show to society we really can’t trust. In Brazil the press say that how Dilma won, she’s going to help this company to pay the favor for Corinthians and Lula.
Corinthians don’t have any money! Some time ago they didn’t pay the light bill!!! It’s very difficult to understand that they will pay for a 600 million stadium (probably much more than it)
Other problem : The land that they want to built is São paulo’s city property!!!The Public Prosecutor is asking back the land, but here is Brazil and probably they will solve this problem (unfortunately we aren’t a serious Country)
Thank you very much

This seems like a situation for the real “Moun Fou” to stand up and speak it as he sees it.

Hi: It has been some time since Doris and l liver there–first in Neves Paulista farther out than Rio Preto. We were planting a church out in the middle of coffee country and the poorest of the poor who worked there. I have a blog about Brazil and our time there – rkennysite.wordpress.com
