World Cup DO

As a lot of FT will be in Brazil Maybe we can organise some kind of DO in Brazil.

I have not much time now to put all details inside. But I promise to update the topic.

1: What city
2: Date
3: Eventually hotel staying
4: Hotel booked but not needed --) Can be shared to other FT if the prices went skyhigh or awards are gone
5: game tickets to exchange

I know that last 2 are either coupon connection topics, but maybe there could be an exception as this would be then the complete FT-DO guide to Brasil.

If someone feels that I am not the person to organise it, then ok for me. If other want to help feel more then welcome!

I think you may as well try for Do's at all the different cities because it's a big country and we are all going to different cities. SSA in my case.

Going to be there for the final game in Rio, used points to get a room at the Sheraton in Ipanema. Still hoping an award seat home will pop up so I can cancel my $$$ DL flight.
So far do not have tickets to the game; guess we'll just scalp or find a bar and watch the game there.

You will be well treated by Charles and his staff. Enjoy this historic neighborhood. Check out "Porfilio's"/Bar do Pascoal nearby, with a great view of the Bay.
