Milan 0 x 1 Barcelona

Wooooohoooo!!!! My first Barcelona game in a packed smoky bar in this city of football lovers and Barça won!!!!!!!!! The match was really exciting and the energy in the bar was something else. We figured we would get there early to get a good seat but unfortunately the rest of the neighbourhood had the same idea.

A couple sitting by themselves in a table for  4 invited us to sit with them and we had a good time. The wife left when the came started – she alleged her nerves wouldn't stand it – but the daughter joined us. Turns out she used to study history and now does art history – medieval art history!! What a small world… Her dad told me he really likes medieval history too and after I told him what I study I got a little speech about how "la reina Isabella" was "muy mala" because she kicked out the Jews and that Ferdinando was "tonto" for allowing her to do it. Very amusing. Alan even got into a little discussion about politics – basically on Canada's relationship with Bush. 

 All in all, a great night. Can't wait for world cup… But before then, Barcelona plays again this coming sunday. Força Barça!!!!

Born and raised in Brazil, a Canadian stole my heart and took me to Canada in 1999. After seven years between Montreal and Toronto, we then moved to Barcelona, Spain, where I did research for my PhD thesis. This blog began as a chronicle of our adventures while living in Barcelona and exploring the old world and has acquired a life of its own after we moved back to Canada.

  1. Obrigada! Faço o que posso…. O que geralmente não é muito.

    Vc assiste futebol? É engraçado – quando morava no Brasil não ligava tanto; torcia pro Flamengo e assistia um ou outro jogo. Fui ao Maracanã algumas vezes com meu irmão. Mas depois que me mudei pro Canadá a coisa mudou. Num país que não entende nada de futebol, virei especialista. Muito estranho. No Brasil ninguém acha que mulher pode entender de futebol. No Canadá o povo me perguntava o que tinha acontecido quando alguem cobrava escanteio e por que um tipo de falta tinha barreira e a outra não… O futebol passou a fazer mais parte da minha identidade como brasileira. Hoje gosto mesmo e assisto quando posso. O que não era muito já que no canadá não passava nada… Não vejo a hora de ir no Camp Nou!
