Latin Amer­i­cans jour­ney to Brazil World Cup

The Covington News - - WORLD -

SAN­TI­AGO, Chile (AP) — Planes, trains and au­to­mo­biles? That’s not all. With Latin Amer­i­can soc­cer fans ea­ger to wit­ness the sport’s big­gest event in their home hemi­sphere, trav­el­ers are tak­ing to bikes, buses, boats and at least one home­built trailer.

Held ev­ery four years, the World Cup hasn’t been in the Amer­i­cas since 1994, when the United States played host. Af­ter Brazil, the games go to the other side of the globe, to Rus­sia and then Qatar. For many, this is a once in a life­time chance to cheer their na­tional teams in per­son.

Cris­tian Urib­arri and four friends are trav­el­ing from Chile in a wood-framed, alu­minum-sided trailer he built from scratch.
