T’was a standout week for at least one of us, and the rest lived vicariously through her. One of our staffers made it to the World Cup in Rio, and can we just say that beats anything we did this week. On the precipice of the final game {go Argentina}, here’s a throwback to the week that was. LBB presents – us at the World Cup. Represent!

With an enthusiastic flight captain, who announced the France-Germany score at 7 minute intervals! For the first time, happy to be in coach with loud cheering and good- natured ribbing between Colombian passengers and Brazil supporters before their match began.

View; the Redeemer |

After far too many hours on far too many airplanes, this view made it all worth it. Squint for Christ the Redeemer. Or all the faithful just close your eyes.

At the Stadium, waiting to be seated for what was to be Argentina’s win against Belgium.

Getting in a little chat with security outside. Almost wishing I was there for the Germany Brazil bloodbath!

Finally seated and waiting for the now finalists, Argentina, take down Belgium, the dark horses of the World Cup.

They Did Cry for You, Argentina |

It’s always great to be from an uninvolved country {most times}; you get to soak in your fellow audience members’ nervous energy. Here, the Argentinians wait with bated breath.
