Day Forty-One

Sent by: Grazyna
From: São Paulo, Brazil
ID number: BR-74112
Notes:This stadium is called Estádio Municipal Paulo Machado de Carvalho.  That's is quite a mouthful, which is probably why it is known as Estádio do Pacaembu.  Interestingly, the sender calls it a soccer field.  The U.S. is one of the very few countries where the sport is known as soccer rather than football or futbol, so I give props to the sender for being culturally aware enough to use that term.  I do try to do the same when I'm sending cards, particularly when referencing distances...miles vs. kilometers.
