Post card 7 - Red Brasilia Brazil 2014

  1. 1. Mane Garrincha StadiumMane Garrincha Stadium
  2. 2. St.Gregory's College Melo 972 Vicente L pez (1638)ó Buenos Aires. Argentina Dear 2nd Grade Children, Here is a little information about Brasilia. The Est dio Nacional, Man Garrincha, isá é Brazil s new national stadium in the city of’ Brasilia. The most characteristic feature are the 288 pillars that go around the outside and hold up the roof. This stadium will host seven matches of the World Cup, including the match for third place. Mane Garrincha was a famous and popular Brazilian football player (he was a star in the World Cups of 1958 and 1962). He was nicknamed the "Joy of the People". Brasilia is the Federal Capital of Brazil and there are many official buildings here. My favorite place to visit is the The Metropolitan Cathedral of Brasilia. It is very close to the stadium. There are abundant gardens filled with fruit trees coco,— carambola, acerola, manga, goiaba, jaca, fruta do conde, jabuticaba. Yummy! Look them up! One afternoon we gathered pequi which we ate cooked with rice and stewed chicken. Love, Red
  3. 3. The background image represents the Cathedral of Brasília, an architectural icon known throughout the world, with the immense blue sky, “the sea of Brasilia”, above it. The yellow on the right represents the sun rising in the east, while the orange on the left represents its setting in the west. Brasilia has one of the largest expanses of green area in the world – almost five times the standard recommended by the World Health Organization – in the form of a vast city park, portrayed here through every possible shade of green. The football player in the foreground is composed of various colours and thus represents all of the ethnicities that make up Brazilian society as well as the coming together of players from all over the world. The even distribution of the background colours recall the green, yellow, blue and white of our beloved Brazilian flag.
