It was thrilling and different Joyable experience, We are going to watch another 1 match in 3D and 1 match in stadium.

Yesterday, I have painted "Brazil" flag on my face and We were walking towards the restaurant on the way the people from Brazil seeing my face they started to talk with us and they began to sing a song of their country slogans. Coming to the recipe, I am planning to post different recipes from FIFA WORLD CUP countries.
