Germany (4) vs Argentina (0)

First of all...
sorry dad! I know you were rooting for Argentina but when in Germany, do like the Germans!
(above) on our way to celebrate with everyone else in town...

(below) we made it! this is (not sure if Im spelling it correctly) Berliner Platz and its basically the town center where everyone gets together to drink, sing, scream, dance, be super german, etc., etc., and just celebrate the step closer that Germany is to the World Cup.
more pics in the bucket. Nevertheless, I was really disappointed in Argentina! I mean, WHAT THE HELL!? They were kicking major ass and suddenly they play Germany and couldn't score not ONE friggin' goal!!! That was crap. Whatever, Germany won, yay!

Germany vs Ghana

Score: Germany-1, Ghana-0
Results: An amazing full-on CITY PARTY! hell yeah! This night was so cool to experience! If Germany wins on Sunday, when they play against England, then it is on and poppin'! THAT will for sure be WAY bigger than this celebration because Germany and England are like enemies in the fussball world. Anyway, enjoy the pics...

(tried my best to fix this one below)

As usual, the rest of the pics are on photobucket album "germany"

Graffiti in Milano, Italy:

It may not always be classy in Italy but they get up for sure!!! Need I say more!? I think not!

Italian Men:

Guys -this is what all the men in Italy dress like. Its the new rage in Europe. Step your game up and go get some hot pink wigs!!! Hahahaha...kidding. Seriously though, this is a group of weird guys celebrating a Bachelor party in the streets of Milan where they all wear wigs and the groom wears an apron and a white sheet with a green wreath on his head (like the Romans) with a sign that said something with "chupito" and "donne" (chupito= shot/ donne=female, woman) basically said "free shot, women only"...Its cool, I know! The objective was to get the groom drunk by going around to random women and taking shots with them while all his friends cheered and took pics. If you're wondering if I took a shot with him you best believe I did! Hahaha. A shot of rum and pear juice. Cheers!


So let me tell you right now, this is gonna be a weird post...its regarding toilets. When I got to Germany I thought the whole toilet situation was weird. Not only because they dont call the entire bathroom a "bathroom" or a "restroom" but just "toilet" and the signs say "WC" rather than something more relevant...anyway, the whole flushing thing was weird. Its like a giant button on the wall above the toilet (in Germany, I mean). And then I went to Italy and VOOALA! yet another strange European toilet flusher: its just like the shower handles, (except you cant go from hot to cold or vice versa) you move it to the side and control how much water and for how long it runs...
