Championes

Wow, what a night. We went to a local bar with a friend of Alex's to watch the soccer (futbol) game. Barcelona was playing for the  championship of the Champions League. They were playing against a British team, Arsenal. Well, first of all let me tell you that being in a bar while this game was going on was an experience itself. Arsenal was winning 1 – 0 after the first half but Barca was getting lots of shots on the goalie. Whern Barca got their forst goal in the second half, the place went wild. Even outside you could hear horns blowing and fireworks going off all over the city. When Barca got their second goal, everyone was on their feet and didn't sit until the game was over. When it ended all hell broke loose. Car horns, fireworks, sirens, bells, horns and whistles, just to name a few. Even now, the singing is going on and the horns and fireworks are continuing. It's absolute mayhem out there, really. I think it's going to be tough to sleep. Well, Barcelona won every cup there was to win this year. A very succesful season for an amazing team.

Ok, back to reality, I have to confess, I lost my schedule to the gym every morning. Today, I went swimming up in the Olympic pool on Monjuic. Boy, that water was cold.

Ok, can't write much, there's too much going on outside, I need to go watch. Here's some photos of some statues and faces.
