thoughts on el clasico.

2 Dec

On Wednesdays, I tutor two girls in the Madrid suburbs of Las Rozas in English. Their mom picks me up from my apartment, and we spend the 20 minute drive to their apartment speaking in Spanish. Nine-year-old Gracia is a big futbol fan, and her team is, of course, Real Madrid. I´d previously told her that I´m a Barça fan.

This was part of our conversation on Wednesday:

Me: Gracia, ¿viste el partido entre Real Madrid y Barça?

Gracia: Si…

Me: Y ¿que piensas?

Gracia: Una caca…

Never a dull moment with kids and a language barrier…but I can´t deny that I wasn´t extremely happy that Barcelona emerged victorious.

    I STILL can’t get over that ridiculous color song of Gracia’s hehehehe. She sounds like a gem.
