A noche, mis amigos y yo fuimos al partido de futbol! Atlético de Bilbao contra Paraguay...mi primer partido de futbol en España! Fue muy divertido! Compre pipas de girasol para comer! Los hinchos estaban muy entusiasmados. Paraguay ganó, pero fue un buen partido. Los hinchos de Paraguay tenían una gran bandera. Ellos agitaban la bandera cada vez que Paraguay anotaba un gol.
Después del partido, mis amigos y yo fuimos al restaurante 'americano.' Comimos hamburguesas! Desde que he estado en España, no he comido hamburguesas! Comimos hamburguesas y hablamos fuera el restaurante. Fue muy divertido!
So, I have been really shy to speak in Spanish here in Spain. My understanding and my vocabulary has definitely increased, but it is hard to think and speak in Spanish...conjugating verbs, et.c! It is also hard sometimes to practice speaking Spanish because many people that I meet want to practice their English and I teach English classes. Anyway, I am going to make more effort to speak more in Spanish! With this being said, I am going to begin writing my blog in Spanish and in English (thanks to an idea from a friend!) No promises on not making mistakes in my writing! Hopefully, this will help me improve my Spanish!

Last night, some friends and I went to a futbol game! Bilbao Athletic was playing a 'friendly' game (British for non-competitive) against Paraguay. This was my first time to attend a soccer game in Spain and it was super fun! I even bought sunflower seeds to eat while I was at the game...yum! The enthusiasm of the fans at the game was awesome! Paraguay ended up winning, but it was a good game. The Paraguay fans had this huge Paraguay flag and whenever they scored or did something good, the fans waved the flag. It reminded me of the parachute game that kids play in PE class.
After the game, we went to a cute diner called Florida that serves "American" food, like hamburgers!!! I was soo excited to eat a hamburger because I haven't had one since I have been in Spain. I don't often eat them in America, but it was so good to eat one after not having one for so long. There was no room to eat in the diner because it was small, so we took the burgers outside and ate them while standing and chatting. Fun times!
