Colombia beats Paraguay in the Brazil 2014 qualifying games!

We watched the game at this local tavern, Terraza Latina, with what originally seemed like a low-key bunch of Colombians. Everyone was drinking beer or rum, and there were balloons in the ceiling, but part from that there seemed to be an average amount of enthusiasm between them. That ended at half time though!! When the first Colombian goal was scored the whole tavern jumped out of their seats and started dancing, popping balloons and soaking each other (and us) in beer.  They won the game and thereby placed second in the first round of qualifying games. You could have easily thought they just won the cup! There were people dancing in the streets and motorcycle parades with Colombian flags for an hour after the match finished. Any excuse for a party I guess:) More pictures
