Watching the Game

Wednesday, December 1st, 2010

Sitting at the office yesterday afternoon waiting for my Photo students to arrive, I kept hearing shouting coming from the streets outside. Since I had a few minutes I wander out and realized the shouting was coming from two small bars across the street from my office. Turns out Barcelona and Real Madrid are playing each other, so Fútbol fans in Xela are watching the game, much of the city is quiet I presume for this reason. The fan in the photo was reacting to a call against Real Madrid. I would have loved to hang out and watch who won, but I had to get back to the office and finish preparing for class.
