Geneva? Rio? You make the call!

Swiss fans have a home away from home in Rio during the World Cup, and fans of every team (as well as locals) have been stopping by the Baixo Suica, a Swiss Fan Zone erected on the bank of the picturesque Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon in the center of the city. Took a bike ride over there Sunday morning, just in time to catch the end of the Roger Federer vs. Novak Djokovic Wimbledon final match, which was showing on a jumbo screen. Swiss fans were hoping for a Federer win, but it was not to be.

The Swiss fan zone is decorated with Swiss flags, cows, skis, and watches. They serve a full menu of Swiss food, and there is a samba band playing Brazilian music. Check it out...
