Can we ever console ourselves after a possibly unjust exit from the World Cup? I am not sure, but, Colombians, Colombia and Mompos were celebrating their nation’s fine performance in Brazil 2014. Just take a look at the following photos to gain an insight into how Mompos celebrates.
Just check out this video and listen to the noise if you are interested in seeing the first celebratory motorcade that ran down Mompos’ Calle del Medio.
So, the dream is over once again but Colombia did themselves proud. They reached the quarter finals beating Greece 3-0, the Ivory Coast 2-1, Japan 4-1 and then Uruguay 2-0 before losing in a physical rumble 2-1 versus Brazil. It was a tough break, they could have gone all the way, perhaps. But, it’s been fun. In particular I have been most pleased with the way that Mompos celebrates and how the locals adopted foreign tourists and involved them in the celebrations.
