Argentina v. Germany tonight. It was an insane crowd of mostly French and Germans. The French were making fun of the Germans (in a friendly way), but the Germans didn’t have much of a sense of humor. Until Goethe scored of course. Then it was all schnapps and smiles. The party went on all night. Long after me and B went to bed we would sometimes wake up to the sound of merriment. There was a lot of evidence the next morning in the form of empty liquor bottles and beer cans littering the common area. But it only happens every 4 years! I’m a little bummed it’s over.

Today we slept in which was much needed. C said goodbye. We won’t see her again until she returns to California in October. We had flower shaped gelato cones. We watched the first half of the France vs. Germany World Cup match with the locals. The pub was packed from the television to the street. Finally we enjoyed a lovely dinner cruise and amazing views of Paris from the river. That’s how we celebrated America’s birthday : )

Today the U.S. played Portugal in an epic World Cup match. Several of our friends in various places ended up in a live Facebook chat blow by blow of the match. W in California, me and B here in Barcelona, C in southern Spain, and A in Italy. So much fun to be able to be connected and enjoying a huge event together. Final score 2-2. We move on!
