Watching the 2014 World Cup in Colombia was yet another expat experience I’ll always remember.
Laziness led me to watch Colombia’s first two morning (local time) matches against Greece and the Ivory Coast from the comfort of home.
They’d already qualified for the Round of 16 heading into their final group stage match with Japan, so the game didn’t mean much, but I decided it was time to start venturing out to Parque Lleras for the full experience. These are my favorite photos from the Japan, Uruguay and Brazil matches.
I fell in love with Colombian football. I watched the qualifiers with my ex’s family and then with some Colombians in San Francisco. Talk about passion. I have never seen a team with so much passion. It was shown with the THOUSANDS that showed up to thank their team in Bogota.
