¡Bravo, La Roja!

Despite tremendous fan enthusiasm, including this vendor at the Avenida Argentina market in Valpo on Saturday...
...we are all very sad in Chile because Brazil won the knock-out round of the World Cup. But what a game! The score was tied at 1-1, and so 2 15 minute over-time periods were played. For those of you who do not follow futbol, this means 120 minutes (plus some extra time for game delays) of play. Can you imagine running in the heat for that long? With no change in the score, the game was decided with penalty kicks...and Brazil got one more than Chile.
It was really great while it lasted, and so much fun to be here to celebrate the wins.
