The Game....

View Europaaaaaaaaa on valentinaa's travel map.

Ahhh so I left you just about to go watch the game....what a game it was, hopefully you all watched it, great. Effin Game!!!! :D
We first watched it at the strange bar/cafe but it was kind of strange, so i suggested we go to the red light district, but it was packed, i was able to find one spot for me to watch, so i was happy, there were English travelers everywhere! i almost didnt feel like in was in Holland anymore!!!
But they were all going for the Oranje team! - when the final whistle was blown, all hell broke loose in the streets of Amsterdam! fireworks, everyone yelling and cheering, just a fantastic atmosphere! I was very jealous that i am not dutch so that i would have been able to join in a little more, after a little wander around, we went back to the hotel and got ready for a night out, mark was too pissed from drinking during the game, so he went to bed, but nat, chris and i waited downstairs for Pavo to show up, he was our local guide for the night! , we started in the hotel bar, while watching the Uruguay game, which was quite entertaining, however when i ordered a "vodka cranberry" i got a straight shot of vodka with a splash of ribena cordial....DIS-CUS-TING went back to the bar to ask what the hell he gave me, and said that what i was drinking was a vodka cranberry, disappointing, so i didnt drink it, and just got a vodka redbull, much much better :P - cant get that drink wrong!
once we had drunk enough at the hotel, we moved on and walked behind out tour guide to wherever he was taking us! - it was 10pm and still light! :O (in fact it did not get dark till 11pm at night! - SO jealous of those long days!!!!!!) so he took us to one particular square, i wish i could tell you the name, but i will try to find out ... but it was pumping! full of pubs people, and of course orange!
so by mistake our tour guide took us to the australian bar, "coco outback - lousy food and warm beer"..what the? since when was Australia known for crap food and warm beer?!?!?! hahaha, but anyway, we enjoyed a few drinks plus the stress of watching the Uruguay game!!! ( GO URUGUAY!)
once we had watched the game, meet a random Australian who invited us to his BBQ the next day, we went for a loooooong walk to the next square and we drank another round or too, and then i had gotten a flat tyre and had bruising on my foot from the havianas i was wearing, i wanted to just come back and get some rest, so we walked back to the hotel, and i left the group as they went to go to the red light district and see what its all about....at night...was not interested so here i am just keeping you all up to date on the trip!

Doei for now, from the V8 supercar (as thats how i sound like when i snore... :P )
