Being away from home can be hard sometimes. The best way to feel the German vibe is to see a soccer match especially when the German team made it to the finals. There were a few places in Washington DC that you could see the matches in a public viewing environment. Besides the Goethe Institute some pubs offered live broadcasting as well. Austria arranged for a huge public viewing in their embassy on June 29th. Around 800 people came there to cheer up the Spanish or German team or just wanted to watch the game. After waiting in line for about half an hour you could enjoy free Bratwurst and cold beer/wine. The embassy set up one huge repro TV (for the next time please make sure there’s no direct sunlight!) and three LCD screens. Too bad Germany lost the game. I would have loved to celebrate a German win. However, the Spanish team made the better game and had strong defense and aggressive offense. Congrats Spain!
