Go Orange...

Euro 2008 here we come.
"We" being Holland that is.
All of a sudden I sense my roots again.
My Dutch roots that is.
Having grown up abroad and traveled around, I don't always feel Dutch.
But, when my country plays in international tournaments, I know where I'm from again.
Last night I went to Alex's Sports Bar close to the clinic to watch the game.
Holland versus Italy.
First of all, watching the games here makes me feel like I'm back at home, not in Africa.
Secondly, within seconds, I felt a connection with my 'home' country again!
A good feeling.
And I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed the game.
Who wouldn't if their team's beating the world champions.
Anyway, it was a spectacular game to watch.
And I'll definitely be watching more...

GO ORANGE!
