I couldn't spend two years in Peru and never make it to a soccer game. This actually happened about a month or two ago and was a great time. The professional league's team where I live is called, "Sport Ancash". And their advantage is that they are playing at 2,500 meters while most teams practice/play at sea level. This game is taking place in Caraz while the main stadium in Huaraz is getting fixed up.
I went with Frank, who lives in the town where the game was. They were playing La U, the most popular team in Peru. It was a big deal.
We got pretty drunk for the game and had a blast. "You can't drink all day if you don't start in the morning!"
