in case you haven´t heard, last night was a big night for spain. they won the European Cup in soccer for the first time in over 40 years. and it´s the first time in over 20 that they´ve even been in the finals. as you can imagine, it was a HUGE party in the whole of the country. they´ve been decked out in flags for days!

i got to watch the game with two spanish bike pilgrims who were also staying at the albergue. we walked (yes…excruciating after the day i´d had!) to the nearby pueblo (about 2km) and watched the game with all the locals. spain scored in the first half and the score remained the same the rest of the game until the end.

pretty amazing experience to get to be a part of. plus, it was more than perfect because i got to watch the game with spaniards, but retire to the countryside to sleep and not have to deal with the noise that i´m sure didn´t cease throughtout the night in all the cities. brilliant.
