Verkiezingen in Brazilië

Rio de Janeiro - Een dagelijks ritueel… bij een krantenkiosk op de straathoek in een van de armere wijken in Copacabana lezen mannen over elkaar schouders de opgehangen O Globo krant. Opmerkingen monden al snel uit in een stevig debat. De uitdrukkingen op de gezichten zeggen genoeg over hoe verdeeld de Brazilianen zijn. Elke dag wordt het volk overspoeld met nieuw onthulde corruptieschandalen en de zoveelste ‘graaiende’ politicus. De massale protesten van vorig jaar staan nog vers in het geheugen.

Second round runoff: Dilma versus Aécio

Sunday 5 October 2014, 10pm local time. Over 99 percent of the votes of the Brazilian general elections have now been counted. Incumbent president Dilma Rousseff (PT) obtained 41.5 percent of the votes, with a total of 42.9 million. Aécio Neves (PSDB) came in second place with almost 34 percent and a total of 34.7 million votes. With only 21 percent of the votes (22 million), Marina Silva came a disappointing third and has bowed out of the race. There will therefore be a second round runoff on October 26 between Dilma and Aécio.

Capoeira in Angola

Capoeira wasn’t the reason I went to Angola. I went there to visit friends, and to see the economical growth I had read about with my own eyes. However, now that I found myself in the country known as the cradle of capoeira, I felt I had to attend a training, so I could see if ‘capoeira in Angola’ is the same as ‘capoeira Angola’ (name of a capoeira style).
