Flag of France  ,
Saturday, June 17, 2006

Barriatz was exactly what we were looking for. Itīs a small fishing town right on the coast next to the France Spain border. We didnt arrive until 5 pm and the US had a soccer game against Italy that night so we were in a huge hurry to find our hotel and get settled. Once we were checked into our budget hotel, we ventured out into the city to find a good atmosphere to match the game. We found a good bar to match the game and we ended up tying with the Italians, which is not back concidering they were picked to kick our butts and now we still have a small chance to go onto the second round of the World cup if we beat Ghana on Thursday and Italy beats the Czech Republic. Later that night, things got a little crazier. We met a couple from London that we talked to for couple of hours and they offered us a place to stay when we go back to London. Apparently Joe doesnt work because his wife makes more than enough to support them so he said when we come to London he can show us around the town. While I was talking to Joe, he saw a Portuguese girl that he had met earlier that night and she was on her way to a club and asked us to come along. On the way to the club, she gave us very detailed instructions to NOT SPEAK TO ANYONE and to not look at anyone. I guess this club was an underground illegal club and imposible for Americans to get into but she knew many poeple there. When we arrived, we were able to cut threw a long line in an alley and go right in after the woman talked to the bouncer and when we got inside it was crazy. This was difinately one of the craziest clubs Ive ever seen. People in crazy outfits and costumes everywhere, it ended up being a great time.

The following morning, with a slight hangover, we headed down to the beautiful beach at the endge of town. It was very cloudy all morning long but within 15 minutes of us lying out our beach mats, it was cleared up and was very hot.
