El Grito


This weekend we celebrated Mexican Independence (from Spain) IN SPAIN. Which was very strange. To make things stranger, the city of Barcelona actually sponsors the festivities. We celebrated on the night of the 15th in a plaza with tons of Mexicans and miscellaneous other people. The 16th, we ended up in a British pub watching Barcelona play soccer (disappointing scoreless tie), Spain's basketball team play (and lose) the final game of the European Basketball championships, and then thankfully the Bears win over Kansas City. Pretty much a solid, fun weekend. Here are the pics:

Este fin de semana, celebramos El Grito en España. Fue un poco raro porque la ciudad de Barcelona patrocina las festividades. Empezamos la noche del 15 con El Grito en una plaza con muchísimos mexicanos y varias otras comunidades. El 16, fuimos a un bar inglés para ver el partido de futbol de Barcelona (empataron a ceros), el campeonato europeo de basquet (perdió España), y luego el partido de los Chicago Bears. En total, un fin de semana muy divertido. Las fotos:
