From left to right: Norlina, Juri, Jan, Alex, Richard, Carlos ( and the beer for Dirk)
Really… I can’t put into words the magic of spending an evening together with friends you actually never met before… (Technically speaking, Carlos and I did meet before in Sydney and Singapore….).
But Alex was someone I had never met before and there was a great dynamics happening between all present.
There was English/Dutch Juri, Singaporian/Belgian Norlina, French/Belgian Richard, Dutch/Brabants Alex, Singaporian/Aussie/Dutch Carlos and Aussie/Dutch Jan. And he (me) was the only on wearing oranje on the outside…
And let’s not forget the lovely crew at VakZuid (the cafe/restaurant we were at) as they prepared a tremendous cake for birthday boys Alex and Juri, who shared a birthday together.
A summary of the night’s conversation in tags:
The Olympic Stadium
The Dutch in London 2012
The Belgium football team
Marc Wilmots (although we forgot his name)
Italian girls on scooters
Louis van Gaal
Asia and Singapore
More Italian girls on scooters (I might be mistaken though)
Thanks to all for donating beer money…. We used it appropriately.
