Game Day: El Clásico…

So yesterday afternoon, me and some of my compañeros went to Madrid to see the Clásico between Real and Barça…And trust me when I say this: It.Was.AWESOME…

…Us on the bus…

O.K., so when we got to Madrid, we immediately went to the Bernabéu (Madrid’s home stadium), and there were thousands of people in and around it–which really isn’t surprising, considering that this was a match between two of the, if the the, most successful clubs in the world, and furthermore, two clubs with the most epic rivalry in the world…

…The exterior and interior of the Bernabeú, which has a lot of stores and restaurants (e.g. T.G.I. Fridays, Tony Roma’s, a supermarket…)…

While waiting outside, we got to see the bus Real’s players traveled in…

…and I got a jersey–that incomparable CR7, Ronaldo!!!!…

Come 4 o’clock, we entered the stadium and took our seats–and the place got completely packed (keep in mind, this place can hold over 85,000 people)…

The game itself was enjoyable to watch…And in the end, Los Blancos (The Whites) defeated Barça in an oh-so-satisfying 2-1 victory, :-)…All in all, a very fun afternoon, :-)…
