The So Cristovo area These streets look different to where we live. Everythings different. The people look different. The shops and houses are all different. People here have more money. There are lots of big cash-and-carry stores here. People can buy their food in bulk in this part of town. Mum says people buy things here and then sell them on.

The local bus (e.g. Avenida Pedro Ii prximo ao 235) I like getting the bus. Our older sister Sara doesnt though! She says its too crowded and because we are young, we have to give up our seat to older people. But I dont mind. For more information about local buses: 6. The Imperial Palace Gardens Quinta da Boa Vista, Avenida Pedro II, So Cristovo [This is] The Royal and Imperial Palace of So Cristovo, the palace has a beautiful park around it called the Quinta da Boa Vista Gardens. Our aunty works as a maid for a rich family around here. So she takes us to the palace gardens sometimes at the weekends. We get to ride our bicycles around it. There it is! Theres a football stadium around here too, for Vasco, the team I support. For more information on the Imperial Palace Gardens: 7. The Maracan Stadium - Estdio do Maracan, Rua Professor Eurico Rabelo, Maracan This is the stadium where some of the World Cup games are happening. Its one of the oldest stadiums in Brazil. It was built in the 1950s for football games. I think it might have been built for another World Cup years ago. They have kept the outside shell of the stadium, but theyve renovated it inside. Seven games will be played here. The stadium is cool! Weve been here before on our bicycles. We came here with my aunty and her friend and cycled all around the stadium. We also came to the stadium last Christmas to watch Santa come down from the stadium. This was the last event in Marakana stadium before it closed down for the World Cup. We have never watched a football match there. We are going to watch the World Cup on the TV at home. The game between Brazil and England will be the most exciting!
