Festive Left Friday Blogging: Flamengo comes to Bolivia

…and Evo had a great time meeting one of the great Brazilian soccer team’s heroes (and his own too, no doubt), Ronaldinho:

Evo also presented Ronaldinho with a special medal for his outstanding contribution to South American sportsmanship:

Bonus: Here’s a little song by Jorge Ben, which pretty much sums up Brazilian pride in teams like Flamengo (and other fun things about life in a tropical country):
