Voetbal! Football with London's Dutch fans

Saturday, June 14, 2008

Last night, the team in orange played the team in blue - just like last Monday, and the orange won again!

I went to Dutch bar De Hems in Soho to watch the match, but it was packed so I didn't get in.

We then went on to a bar called the Golden Lion, which was a De Hems overspill. Lots of orange there too.

Highlights were:
  • The Dutch winning. They were so happy and smiley.
  • Learning "Head, shoulders, knees and toes" in Dutch. It goes something like 'hefte, showlders, k-nees an' ting'
  • Learning to say "nice legs" in Dutch - something like 'moy banen'
  • Meeting a very tall Dutch man with a big adam's apple. I had been told this would happen.
