Feeling the vibe

FW:France is in the finals!

It's not hard getting caught up in all the excitement of the World Cup. I'll admit that I'm not a huge soccer fan. But I've found something that draws me to the game besides the game itself.  The fans.  Sitting with 20 of my friends tonight and cheering together as we watched France beat Portugal I really felt like I was experiencing an intimate aspect of the French culture.  It's so interesting to see how differently each culture reacts to this sport.  The melodramatics of the Italians. The stoicism of the Germans.  The French pride.  I am starting to really enjoy all this world cup hype.  So, it's now France vs. Italy in the finals... I hope that we put the Italian melodramatics to a rest once and for all!

Allez les bleus!  It is 1:08am and Place d'Italie is like an outdoor party.  People dancing in the streets (yelling and singing that I can hear from my apt).  Car horns blaring.  French flags flying from apt windows. The vibe is outstanding...
