Life in Culebrón is a disconnected series of pieces about the banal and ordinary of everyday life in an inland Alicante village seen from my very British perspective.

Thanks to the Irish

Maggie thought it would be more entertaining in a Spanish bar than to sit at home and watch the football. I wasn't keen but the clincher was her offer to drive.

It was a scrappy game, none of the back and forth of Ghana and Uruguay, none of the precision of Germany whupping Argentina but in the end we put it away and one nil is as good as twenty nil in a knockout competition.

The bar was a bit subdued and there were as many expats as Spaniards but at half time a group of Northern Irish turned up and they made so much noise that the game seemed much more exciting.

Germany eh?

Yes, Germany and after uruguayans or dutches...In a week Spain world cup champions.
Estoy seguro de que lo conseguiremos.

But weren't you confident that Cartagena were First Division bound?

Miki said...

jajajajaja, ok, one point for you...but Cartagena was very near. Spain , I think, will win to Germany.
Por cierto, ¿dónde está la selección inglesa? :)

La selección inglesa esta en casa tomando té.

Buena suerte a la Roja hoy. Estaré viendo la tele con mi bufanda puesta, una cerveza en una mano y con los dedos de la otra cruzados
