Kourageous Korean

From the Applewine District, we walked back over to the Romerberg, passing by the Fanfest where a capacity crowd had gathered along the banks of the Main for the Croatia-Brazil game.

Over at the Romerberg, the jubilant Koreans were celebrating their win with loud but festive cheers and songs. Many looked like they'd be spending the night there, as sleeping bags and blankets were spread out around the plaza. One particularly brave, shirtless soul decided to scale the Fountain of Justice, South Korean flag in hand. Fortunately he made it up and down without incident. I think the other Koreans thought he was crazy as well, because no one seemed all that excited when he got to the top. It was more like an "Ok, buddy, you go do that," reaction.
