Day Four - World Social Forum March

The march to mark the beginning of the World Social Forum here in Brazil (seems a sensible route to Guyana!) started with maybe 50,000 people. After the first hour there was a big tropical storm with torrential rain. At the end of the march, where cars were coming back onto the streets, this protester was struggling to catch up. He was struggling against the wind, soaking wet from the rain. It was incredible how everybody carried on with the march. Less than an hour later it was hot dry and sunny.
