Imagine my surprise, two days after leaving São Paulo and a few hours after checking in at the Hongdae Guesthouse, to meet this Brazilian footballer.
Rodrigo used to play for the Brazilian club Flamengo, but has come to Korea to try out something new.

Rodrigo had two different pairs of Adidas shoes that he showed me.
This shoe has an indentation in the sole where one can insert an electronic device that tells how much contact with the ball the player has had, how far the player has run, and perhaps more. Yikes!
