"I lost everything I had in the disaster and I can't help thinking about how miserable my life has become," 36-year-old Jean-Marie Sannon told Reuters on Thursday. Sannon stood under a makeshift tent in an overcrowded camp in the Champ de Mars area near what remained of the presidential palace that collapsed in the magnitude 7 earthquake that hit on Jan. 12.
He said that if Brazil wins he will be happy for the rest of the year. "I probably would have become crazy if the World Cup were not organized this time around," Sannon said. "But if Brazil is champion, I'll spend the rest of the year celebrating even without a dollar."
