London Olympics: Brazil National House

The Olympics Games is winding down but before the Closing Ceremony time for a couple of posts on another side of London 2012.

All over the capital are the National Houses, showcases from countries all over the world. There's a full list here but I only got to see three of them.

First up, Brazil, host country for the next Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, which is one of my all time favourite cities.

It was located within the fantastic Somerset House and included examples of Brazilian art and overview of the arrangements they are making for the next games, including the 3D logo.
There was also a stage for live music which alas I didn't get to see (it was the day of the beach volleyball ticket) but must have been a lot of fun.
However despite all that Brazil wasn't my favourite....
