the REAL deal

What little I know of Real Madrid is of their 'Galaticos' days, before Ronaldo was called El Gordo, Zidane, Figo, Roberto Carlos, Raul, Casillas ruled the fields and of course, the all too popular David Beckham just made his Spanish debut.
Real Mardrid has its fair share of fans in Malaysia, my buddies among them. I was repeatedly told that it would be a sacrilege not to visit the Santiago Bernabeu stadium and bring home photos and souverneirs. So, there I went.
Got there quite early that morning and found a few busload of people queueing to buy tickets. I joined the line. A ticket for the tour cost 15 euros. Hmmmmm... pretty expensive.
But suprisingly, I find the tour quite interesting. You start off in this museum sort of - wall of history, wall of fame, trophy room.
Then, into the changing room and press room. I didn't realise I spent almost 2 hours in there.
Anyhew, got souverneirs for the Real Madrid's fansters at home. Expensive but I know they would shower me with love for years to come.
