    This is sad no doubt and condolences to the friends and fam. However if we paid close attention to the Brazlian news, Soccer referee stabs and kills player on the field, spectators then swarm the field and decapitate the ref. Now this. People have the cheek to call us a violent country????? I wish the FIFA players a safe journey if infact the world cup does go ahead in Brazil

    he was not a "funk singer", rather a 'funk carioca' singer, which is a South American hiphop/dance genre.

Welcome to the tourists who come to watch the world cup, come because the stages are beautiful you need conheçer each one, just do not forget to make a control Mediso before coming to the hospital do not need, because the structures are not as as good and the service can take hours ... More about violênia ... Without words, to watch 15 minutes of a single summer news survivors, counting the fatalities of young adults and children. This too!
