People stand along the cobblestone street and watch the Italy-Uruguay, World Cup game on a television in the Pelourinho neighborhood of Salvador, Brazil, Monday, June 23, 2014. The neighborhood was the center of the city during the Portuguese Colonial Period and was named Pelourinho, which means pillory, for the whipping post, in the central plaza. This is where African slaves were whipped and tortured in public. The city of Salvador was where a majority of slaves from Africa were brought into Brazil.
