The girls & I under a national flag that was being raised for game day. Literally, every other person here is dressed in a red or yellow jersey on game days. It is bizarre, but fun to see the unity the World Cup brings this country.
World Cup Colombian manicure
So, we invited some Colombian friends over to our house to watch the game. This was our first time to have Colombians over without any other missionaries here. It was good & there were 2 English speakers who helped us with our translations. One of our guest just brought us a can of peaches to contribute to our snacks. I was thinking, in the states, people would bring chips & dip, or something like that. But here, a can of peaches. And may I say the peaches were a big hit & were all eaten!
Our guests plus me
These are Isabella's new friends who live in our neighborhood. One speaks only Spanish & the other speaks some English & of course fluent Spanish.
This guy is a household name for us & these girls all like him! His name is James Rodriguez & he scored the 2 goals that Colombia scored in our win against Uruguay. In case if you wondering, Colombia plays again on Saturday. In the meantime, USA plays Belgium on Tuesday.
Here is a quick video of our house after the win. On a side note, after each goal scored, this guy (who is the brother of someone we invited) would just open our door & start blowing his horn. He was very nice though & it added to the fun!
