A quick jolt back into reality, tonight at 1900 Spain vs Portugal Mondiale. I know, I know, pilgrims are not supposed to be so interested in football but don't be surprised if your pilgrim menu takes a bit longer to get to your table and later in the evening sounds of great rejoicing and shouts in the street or those of fear and a great gnashing of teeth. You have been warned.

I didn't realize how big soccer was until I was O Pedrouzo and the albergue let us stay out past curfew to watch a game at the bar.

As an FYI, I believe the game starts at 20:00 (8pm) in Spain (19:00 in Portugal).

A couple of years ago I stayed in an Albergue where the Hospitalero had a large TV screen to watch a European football final between Athletico Madrid and Real Madrid.

He gave everyone free drinks while we watched the match!!

We are in Porto and watched the game on a big screen with thousands of fans. A great experience. Very fun!
