cesc, what are you doing down there?!!

previously korea and china… and now, japan.  the barca boys flew straight to asia for the club world cup after their resounding victory at the bernabeu, and it looks like they’re all enjoying the change in scenery and new culture.  so many tweets and posts, i can hardly keep up!  i had planned on including all their photos in the semifinal match post, but they’re just piling up fast, so here’s a recap —

direccion japon — it must have been some flight!! morale through the roof, and everyone celebrating a job well done during a much-anticipated fixture.  i’m madly jealous of the flight crew, tbh. 🙂

… and meeting the children of fukushima….

lucky kid!

… but the real fun was all the nonsense that went on during their free time 🙂  geez, pep!  cut them loose and they go roaming around the city like crazy people who think they’re normal!

view from the hotel, do you know what this is? - puyi's twitter

someone awesomely replied “mount puyi” 🙂

carles puyol wants to buy train tickets in yokohama -- pique's twitter

now pique may have just been stating a fact, but based on previous behavior, i’m sure everyone read it as making fun of his captain… probably why he was suddenly replaced by a painfully handsome fontas in the tokyo metro adventure —

but among all the posts and tweets, this for me was miles above the rest —

i found the japanese version of deco in the elevator! -- cesc's twitter (hilarious!!)

      pinto and alves tweet the weirdest things, no? pinto’s been going on about some “warrior of light” proverbial wisdom for some time now, alternating with crazy gangsta music stuff 🙂 that fontas…. i’d like to pick his brain about his captain!

  2. Glad to see that the boys are also having fun.

    • orangerie says:

      me too! i just wish the other guys like busi and abi had social networks too! still waiting for a VV post and photo, hopefully he’ll give us something good!

  3. Love the post – there has been so much twitter-fun lately!!
    I just don’t get why the people around them isn’t freaking out – I would. Imagine you are standing in the train as you always do and suddenly Puyi is next to you!
