Its All About SOCCER!

Today was a cold day in Hamburg.

We started out with a boat ride down the canal which was really pretty. Then we headed out to the "Public Viewing". No we did not go to a funeral. The Public Viewing is a HUGE area that has food tents set up from each of the countries participating in the World Cup as well as an enormous video screen for everyone to watch the game on.

Unfortunately it began to rain so instead we headed to a pub and watched the game from there.

After Germany lost and the rain stopped and the sun came back out we headed back to the Public Viewing area to take in all the booths. All I can say is this country is soccer-crazy! The people on the streets were wild even though they lost. I can't even begin to imagine what it would have been like had they won!
