Barcelona v. Madrid

December 14, 2008 by Evin

Soccer love is alive and well in Spain. Tonight, Madrid is in town for a match against Barcelona. It is a serious rivalry and an important game. Though tickets are too dear ($$$) for us to go to the actual match at Nou Camp, we couldn’t miss the excitement so we took the Metro down to enjoy the tailgate excitement. Tailgating is not done here as it is in the States, but there is still a great energy and celebration prior to the matches. 


We arrived with hoards of people and browsed the merchandise booths, finding scarves for ourselves to warm us up as the rain began to fall. When the rain began to take on a determined weight, we made our way toward the flat to find dinner. On the way, we enjoyed seeing Antoni Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia.
For dinner, we found a neighborhood spot and enjoyed gazpacho, filet, sangria, and other yummies.
