Brazil 3 - Ivory Coast 1
I joined Myrthes, Leo and their friends for the futbol/soccer game and a BBQ. It was at their friends' flat that had an open court yard with the outdoor kitchen. The gathering is similar to home but the cooking very different. The men all gathered in the outdoor kitchen/bar and cooked every kind of meat - pork, chicken, lamb, sausage and ever kind of beef going. They served sliced meat the whole game, before and after. For a sweet, Myrthes brought small ice cream cones that you filled with dulce de leche - (thick sweet milk). It was a wonderful time and fun to be included. Brazil will play again on Friday but I will be back in the US.
