World Cup Frenzy

On Friday night it was the opening game: 5 girls. one tv set. many liters of beer.

needless to say, I had FUN! It was a lot of fun to watch, and I've been watching since friday, since there are 3 games perday (one at 3pm, 6pm, 9pm). In Berlin, it's just crazy. There is not many bars or restaurants not showing the game... People everywhere drinking beer and watching the game. The whole public transport system is now working through the night, and at any time of the day you will hear people chanting, screaming, partying all over the city. People of all nations are here i the city now, and of all cities, let's just say that berliners aren't exactly known for their friendliness... oh well.

Sunday I went kayaking. This week we learned how to get straight up again when we accidentally flip over. (Those boats are mean things!!) It's a bit scary the first time you're head under water, because the lower part of your body is literally stuck in boat, but once you get the hang of it it's fun.
After a couple of hours I was really tired, and I thought I couldn't make it back to our starting point. Ironically, the last half hour I really pushed myself, over my personal boundaries, and I arrived 2nd out of 8. I was completely exhausted, but it feels good to know that your body has established a new limit of physical capacities.

Monday I woke up SICK. It was 30 degrees and beautiful outside. great. The bf was also sick, so we spent the day on the sofa underneath the covers taking care of each other.

I am for Germany for the World Cup, by the way, since Canada as usual is not playing. I've fallen in love with the number 2 Goal keeper, Olli Kahn (he's the Bundeskahn!) He is an ANIMAL! and I hope he'll be playing tomorrow night.

Ah, to be a soccer ball...

Sorry, Frankie. What a game. I was getting scared in the overtime though as it seemed the Germans were losing steam. Crap. I guess that means we'll both be rooting for France. I cannot believe I could ever be in a spot to do that.
