  Cheering for Botafogo - Ilha do Governador by JP
by RafaelTheSecond

I really do not know if you can see me, but I was there almost one year ago with my maltese friends. We went to a very local neighborhood of Rio called Ilha do governador, to see my football team Botafogo playing against Santos...We had a great time, and I had the chance to see Robinho playing in his hometown team, Santos, now he is a millionaire in Real Madrid and he is in Germany playing for our National Team!;)
