I finally made it to the place that I had dreamed about for a long time. The flight there took about 6 hours. When I stepped out of the plane a warm gust of wind blew in my face and the thermometer showed 26 degrees. The sun was shining and the sky was clear. There were a lot of people at the airport and there were a lot of different languages, Finnish, Spanish, English… An international atmosphere! I had been arrived in Las Palmas.
I had booked tickets to a football match, UD Las Palmas against Sabadell. The match was played at Estadio Las Palmas de Gran Canaria Stadium. The atmosphere at the stadium was awesome. The home team and the away team`s supporters stood on opposite sides of the stadium. They waved their flags, played drums and encouraged own home teams. Win was important for the UD Las Palmas because it ensured access to the first division of the Spanish League which is called La Liga. At first, the visitors took the lead, but later the home team tied the match at 1-1. The atmosphere was exciting. Five minutes before the end of the match, Las Palmas Manuel Canpillo settled the match with a superb goal. The ball hit the goalkeeper`s hand in the upper right corner. The game ended. Las Palmas won the match 2-1 and made it possible to gain access to the La League. Great!
