Anyhow the moral of the tale is that it snowed 4-5 inches overnight and I am feeling a bit peaky so we're taking a 'rest day' and chilling out. Cate tells me this is the perfect opportunity for me to get involved in the blog so here I go...
My specialist topic is El Mundial - the World Cup
On days that Argentina play it is mayhem, shops close, the tube stops, buses stop and everyone crams into any cafe, restaurant or even cinema to watch the game together. They all dress up in blue and white, with flags of all sizes, face paints, zuvuzelas and whistles.
They are obviously loving this world cup because of their team doing so well thus far. On Tuesday we watched their game in the town of San Martin de los Andes, according the wikipedia there are 24,000 in habitants and I kid you not that after the game there was a precession for an hour down the main street, there must have been at least 5,000 people there. They were all cheering beeping their horns and jumping around it was fantastic! Not sure why they were not all getting back to work after the game, but that just about sums up the Argentinian spirit!
