Allen Voor Een at Cafe Cox

A couple of weeks ago, I was in Precinct 5 and I got asked to get my photo taken wearing the new Netherlands away shirt and an NSW Destroyer. Of course I said yes, but at the time I wasn't exactly sure why.

Later that week, I was emailed the photo, along with a note saying to RSVP to a party and pick up the jacket and shirt I had been wearing in the photo. I didn't know what my photo was being used for, let alone there being a party and a new Destroyer and NL shirt.

This was my photo and to begin with, I loathed it; like I was genuinely devoed, but now I've kinda warmed to it, even though I don't think it's the best photo that's ever been taken of me.
The party was on Wednesday night at Cafe Cox on Marnixstraat, and it was to watch the Netherlands v England football match, arranged by the guys from the NSW Netherlands team and the wonderful people from Precinct 5.

The party was so dope, my words wont justify it, so here's some photos taken from patta.nl's flickr photostream (let me know if you want them taking down!)

I can't wait for the European Championships later this year; I was gutted I came to Amsterdam just a few months after World Cup 2010, so I can't wait to see how the Netherlands does this year. I feel slightly bad for saying it, but without a doubt I wanted NL to win the game on Wednesday, so was pretty psyched when they did. 

Good times.
