¡Viva España!

I missed the parade this afternoon to check out the final of the Euro Cup; I simply could not miss it! I really wanted Spain to win, not only because it is Spain but because I really like the kind of football (aka soccer) they play and I really didn’t want a defensive team to win. They played really well the whole tournament, scoring 11 goals in 5 matches with only 3 goals against. Plus, Spain hadn’t won anything for decades and needed a bit of a boost in confidence.

And they got it! Germany 0 x 1 Spain in a match filled with opportunities for Spain and really tense towards the end (as any final should be). Enhorabuena España!!! As the Sport newspaper says, the “buen fútbol” won.

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.
