Holland Day 3

Soccer, soccer, soccer


Today Daniela and I went to watch Martijn play soccer with his team. He plays on his city's team and they were playing another city about an hour away. It was a perfect day for soccer. Unfortunately his team lost 0-2. I got a lot of good pics of him playing so that was good. Later that night we went to the local bar called "Da Binker" (that's the real name I did not make it up) to watch Czech Republic play Holland in a world cup qualifying game. We got to meet some of Martijn's friends there and they were still nice to me even after I told them I wanted the Czech Republic to win :). Well the Czech Republic also lost 0-2. It was a sad day for soccer. I did get made fun of a lot after that. After the game we went to Lemmer, a town near Martijn's where we ate dinner the first night, for some dancing. The place was packed with people and the DJ was playing anything from Old American Rock to Dutch music. I never felt so short in my entire life. The averate height of the people there had to be at least 6'2" even girls!!! Martijn's friends had to pratically get down on their knees to have a conversation with me. They were shocked when I told them I was 24. I guess I looked a lot younger... oh well. We had a lot of fun dancing and hanging out with the Dutch guys.
