An exciting vacation finale

As you should know, Spain defeated Germany 1-0 last night to win the 2008 European Soccer Championship. All of Spain exploded in joyous celebration with the victory.

My visiting niece and nephew became big fans, and they stayed up late to see the outcome. They even joined the street celebrations before and after the game. Waving their flags, they chanted "Es-pa-ÑA! Es-pa-ÑA! Es-pa-ÑA!" and other fans exuberantly waved back.

The game made for an exciting finish to their 10-day vacation in Spain. They're winging their way back home now, and I'll miss them very much.
