Si Hicimos [Yes, We Did]

The last time I was in a country that won a major international tournament was 1966 in England. I was 9 years old. Now I'm 50, and Spain have won the Euro 2008 tournament. Amazing, incredible, estupendo. I cannot begin to describe the atmosphere here in Madrid tonight. There have been at least three major firework displays, we wandered around waving our Spanish flags and fans for an hour or so, the square below us is packed with noisy people and I don't think any of them will leave until the Metro opens at 6am.

Fantasic. Just fantastic.

I just came from Chueca to Canal and there are lots of people with flags and cars beeping their horns! What an atmosphere.

It's nice to see!! Really nice atmosphere out in the streets. Shame I'm going home to the UK tomorrow. :(

I was in Greece 4 years ago when Greece won it - what a night, absolutely amazing. I got some wonderful photo's and me and Mrs DB had mega hangovers the next morning.

You must have got some pix, so I hope you are going to post them.
