We then went out downtown to find the public viewing area to watch the semifinal between Spain and Germany. People I asked said there would be a big screen at one of the main plazas. When we got there, there was no public viewing area. In fact, there was almost nobody watching the game. We had to walk down three or four streets in order to find a bar that was showing it on a projector. A fair amount of people showed up for the game but for the SEMIFINALS it was a very poor showing. Part of the reason is because they’re part of the Basque Country and many people in the area want autonomy from Spain. We then had a similar night to the one before of: drinking and hanging out at the hostel with friends.
