It's now for over 20 years that I love the game. And it's high-time to design my own page, or hopefully: page-collection, about the best game of all.
As the World Cup is still going on and I just arrived home from a one-week-trip to Germany, I'm starting with some pictures of the atmosphere. I wasn't in a stadium, but still it was a great experience: fans and flags everywhere: in the WC cities (I visited Munich and Dortmund) and also in the cities where no games are played (I visited Essen and Duisburg). Here are a few pictures I shot:
|Morning of Jun 19th in Munich railway stations: sleeping Brasil and Australia fans everywhere.||A Spanish fan in a Munich fountain.|
|Watching Germany vs. Ecuador in Cafe Extrablatt in Essen.||A Mexican fan in Dortmund railway station.|
|The main street in Dortmund.||In the "Zum Alten Markt"-restaurant in Dortmund.|
|Football is an impuls for faith: the bulletin-board of the St. Maria Evangelic Church in Dortmund||In the Dormund Kronen-pub.|
|English fans in the Kronen-pub.||And some more English fans. Managed to make me an England-fan.|
|Japanese on the left, Swiss on the right.||Italians in Essen celebrating victory over Czech Republic.|
|Brasil fans on the way to Dortmund to the match with Japan.||Munich before the match Germany vs. Sweden.|
|Bavaria is ready for the game.||The Munich main square befor Germany vs. Sweden.|
|Swedish fans in Munich.||All pubs and inns are ready for the game.|
|A pub in the Munich Leopoldstrasse during Ger. - Swe..||The street is very wide and there are many pubs... all were looking like this.|
|That's me. The author of this page.||Celebrating victory.|
|The hole street full with happy people...|
|Music and singing everywhere.||Fans at the main square.|
