Football crazy

The first matches of the Euro 2008 were played yesterday and Holland will play it's first match tomorrow evening. But for many weeks already it seems as if the orange fever has hit this country. Houses and even whole streets are decorated and wherever you look there are orange things.

In the supermarket free orange stuff is given away, like hats, scarfs, whistles, etc. so that we can dress up in orange when watching the matches.

This afternoon we cycled around and I took some pictures to share with whoever visits this blog.

The picture above is the doorway to the following café which has fully covered its frontside with an orange screen.

Even the bike standing next to the café is orange!

And see that street: orange flags everywhere.

We cycled on through the wonderful countryside. The weather was really nice.

Ah and last but not least our car has a little orange crown on the towbar!! Now say for yourself are we football crazy or not??

Well let's see how the players will play! Here's wishing all football fans lots of fun!

Italy beaten 3-0 and France 4-1. The Dutch are on cracking form. I hope they win (In the absence if England or Ireland, I am supporting Holland)

Here's also hoping PSV win a European trophy next year (My relatives live in Deurne so PSV are the local team)
