I spotted this huge mural in the Santa Teresa district of Rio’s centre. This artistict and vibrant neighbourhood has long been campaigning for the reopening of their Bonde, Rio’s last surviving tram system which ran from Lapa to Santa Teresa until it was closed in 2012 following an accident. The locals want the system to be refurbished and reopened, a feeling captured in this mural of Brazil winning the World Cup. My favourite touch is Messi, Argentina’s star player, weeping in the corner!
