The threat was issued by the First Capital of the Command in Sao Paulo, who last year was behind the murder of more than a hundred of the city's police officers.
I was completely disgusted with this biased article from the Daily Mail. It's quite clear that the author has never set foot in Brazil and doesn't know much about the protests. Disgraceful reporting that can cloud a lot of opinions, shame on the Daily Mail.
As readers of my blog know I am a great lover of the air pass tickets, they allow you to purchase up-to nine internal flights in Brazil or even a pass for flights throughout South America at much reduced price, fantastic if you want to see a lot of such a huge country/ continent. So imagine my dismay at finding out that they are not allowing the tickets in the World Cup period, utter greed. I'm afraid that theres going to be an awful lot of very unhappy people in Brazil in the World Cup period due to way some companies (read as most) are gearing up to rip off consumers as much as possible, it's such a wasted opportunity to showcase how wonderful a holiday destination Brazil is and will just leave all travellers with a very bitter taste at the end of the Cup, so sad.
This is what the companies normally offer.

I often read this great blog, written by a fellow Brit living in São Paulo, Brazil, 'The books on the table' This week Andy warns of the perils of going home for a visit ... how wonderful your old life seems when you go back. Most expats I know tend to return home once a year for 3 to 4 weeks, and there's the problem...it's not long enough to remember all the reasons you wanted to leave in the first place ... as Andy points out the grass is rarely greener ... I stay at least 3 months and by the end of it I am so damn happy to be getting back on that plane ... but it's very easy to be seduced by old favourites that expat's miss so much ... in Andy's case, warm beer baked beans and monster munch.
I'm luckily at the stage where I have figured out how to make nearly everything I missed in food and drink...though I still pack thousands of teabags! This is what I miss...some I refuse to miss and ship back with me after visits home...some I make at home...will post the recipes soon.
