Former Juneau resident, Juneau-Douglas High School player, and Juneau Soccer Club coach Jeremy Gleason has spent the last few weeks in Brazil watching the 2014 FIFA World Cup. He’s provided commentary on the games and the very unique cultural experience every few days during KTOO’s Morning Edition program. Below are some of the images that he’s collected from his recent stop in Salvador.
Some of the pictures include images of the cobblestone streets of the Pelourinho historical district, Bahian Independence Day celebrations, and a fried fish snack called bolinho de bacalhau.
Gleason said many American fans appeared to be heading home after the United States’ loss to Germany in the knockout round. But he planned to stick around until the final game of the World Cup.
