Hup! Holland! Hup!

Hup! Holland! Hup!, originally uploaded by CharlesFred.

Going orange for Oranje!

Getting into the spirit, before the quarter final between Holland and Brazil.

The kick-off was at 16.00, whichj is work time and my boss had arranged a video conference for the whole afternoon. I managed to let him agree to phone in from home, so I coiuld make a quick get away to watch the match in town with my friends.

Usually these calls do not la;st so long but due to some reorganisation at work, there were new people on the call and it took much longer than normal, on the very day you didn't weant it to. Still, after a frustrating first half listening in and watching some of teh action without sound, the call suddenlty ended before Holland scored their first goal. I sped down to the centre and managed to get to Cafe Stephens in time tio see Holland score their second goal and se Brazil collapse totally under the pressure.

Great excitement in the heat of what at 33 degrees was the hottest day we have had in Amsterdam for a few summers.

Went to Fred's school's end of term party in Oegstgeest in teh evening and came back to rescue my bike form being stolen (in the excitement of rushing down to watch teh match I had forgotten to lock it up against something solid). Bike was still there at 1 am and it was after 4 when I finally cycled home, with the sky lightening from the north east, the birds singing and a delicious scent hanging in the air. What a perfect end to a great day!
