    Le Foot

    Le Foot

    In Guinea, they play football (or soccer to the US people) ALL DAY!!! It is almost a religion to the people here! They have games everywhere and anywhere at the same time.

    Ok, remember when we would take the nets out and put them in the middle of the street or block and play... well they stop traffic!!! Seriously... the teams pay little kids to actually lay down in front of on comming traffic!!! These games take place on the street or in some remote areas.

    There are a few stadiums left, some that look like they have seen better days! I have never seen a white face in one of the matches, but they are extremely entertaining to watch and the people go nutz when teams score!!!

    Equipment: If you go, try to sit behind someone on the edge because the action gets wild! Also, the shade is very hard to come by, so if you find it... stay there!!!
