A World Cup Futbol Tour

Our bike tours the other day got consumed by an outside force of nature: Colombia’s World Cup match with England. Once play started, interest in riding waned, and we rode from television to television, where we waited, impatiently, for a Colombian goal. We just happened to catch Colombia’s dramatic equalizer in the last minutes of regulation time in a small restaurant on Carrera Septima.

Then we rode on to the tejo pitch in the Las Nieves neighborhood. However, for once, almost nobody wanted to play Colombia’s official national sport, preferring its national passion: futbol.

The two overtime periods passed by with few goals, but lots of passionate yells from the Colombian fans, who took time out to snap selfies with the foreigners. Finally, came the passion and disappointment of the penalty kick-off, which ended with Colombia’s defeat – by a single failed penalty.
