Reisverslag Orange Madness!
7 juli 2014
As I have learned in Denmark, the Dutch like to be negative about a lot of things in contrary to the positive Danes. But when ‘our boys’ are performing very well on the World Cup, everybody is positive about anything. Are you stuck in a traffic-jam? Just put on some Dutch football music and shout Holland and no-one will be angry anymore. Are you having a fight with your neighbour about the fence in your garden? Just hang some orange flags on the fence and cheer for Holland, this will bury the hatchet for one month. And although some Dutch do not like certain immigrants in the Netherlands. If they are dressed in orange these days, they are definitely treated like a native.
It is dull and completely exaggerating how the Dutch react, but whatever... I certainly enjoyed watching the World Cup matches with my international friends on the big screen and celebrate the victories in Aalborg but I love the atmosphere and I certainly enjoy watching it in the Netherlands as well. I secretly hope we will win this Wednesday so the Dutch support will be much bigger and more fulsome than it already is. Hup Holland!
Ps. If you go to the Netherlands these days, make sure you are dressed in orange, because you have a way better time than when you dress in a shirt with light-blue/white stripes.
