3er De Febrero

Today I went with my younger host brother and a friend to see a futbol match in the local stadium. It was much smaller than the other game I went to. The crowd really wasn´t that big and the stadium wasn´t in the best condition. One thing that never ceases to amaze me is what is sold at futbol games. There is your traditional pop and popcorn being sold, but there are also other things such as chipa (a traditional paraguayan corn bread) and fruit salad. There were some guys selling "milk" in the stands as well. They yell milk because they legally aren´t allowed to advertise that they´re selling beer.
Afterward we had to walk a distance to be picked up near "The Inside" (a local bar and lounge). It´s a bit unnerving to walk through CDE at night due to all the potential crime. But we were fine walking as a group. Then we went to Pizza & Cia and got some good pizza.

Tonight was a good night.
