Hup Holland Hup!


I watched the deciding game between NZ and Italy yesterday. NZ are out now but they did so well to get as far as they did. Some kiwis were so emotionally invested  in the game, it was hard for them to watch.

It's been fun seeing all of our friends and workmates, all different nationalities, support their teams. And no-one more so than the Dutch. There are orange flags all over town, on cars and bicycles. Every other person in the street is wearing orange, regardless of how ugly the item of clothing might be!

As NZ is out, I would love it if Holland won, that's my backup team of course. But for this week I think that I've reached my quota of football.
