I (Rena) decided to go downtown where a big screen has been set up during these games and "experience the experience" of watching this one with the thousands of people who were there.
(As a missionary, I also had other thoughts during this time...)
This is the sad atmosphere we'll have to take into consideration during the next several days as we continue with our ministries here. But not to fear. Brazilians adjust (and we do, too) and life goes on!
