5 Minutes

May 6, 2010


5 Minutes and my train was at Alkmaar Central.  The Sun was shining( What strange is in Holland) My traintraveler went out in Heiloo. So the seat before me was empty. A guy with a suitcase came to sit before me.

I did not knew anything about him. He did not knew me. I was fighting with my earphones and he was taken his seat.

What a lovely weather he said. I agreed with him. And we start just a random conversation. I wanted to knew where he was going (First to his parents then to China). We talked about school and his work.

It wasn’t a long conversation. Just 5 minutes. But I knew this guys life. And he knew my. What a nice guy.

We separated at Alkmaar. He went left and I right. When I walked away I was thinking about the situation. And came to the conclusion. Everybody in Holland must be that nice.

Just for 5 minutes


Twente Champion

May 6, 2010

This weekend the decision was made. Who is the champion of Dutch Soccer 2010
Ajax Amsterdam or FC Twente.

I Wasn’t following the matches. I was supporting my own club (AZ Alkmaar) against PSV Eindhoven.
What a terrible matches. AZ missed chance by chance. Still PSV was Better. So it wasn’t a surprise that it was going to be 0-1 first. After a fault of Ooier(PSV( Damn were taking him to the World Cup)) El Ham scored the 1-1. Feyenoord Rotterdam Won of Heereveen (6-2) so AZ ended 5e. But we still have European Football

But we’re talking about the Championship. Twente or Ajax. David or Golliath. And they played against NAC and NEC. Ajax scored first. 0-1 against NEC . Everybody in Alkmaar was following the match by radio on there mobile. Nobody was cheering.

Minutes Later. PSV or AZ didn’t make a goal. But the whole stadium was exploding. Everbody yelled “Helemaal niet in Amsterdam”(Nothing in Amsterdam). And Everbody knew it. It was 0-1 For Twente.

Ajax scored and Scored. 0-4 was it. And  FC Twente wasn’t scoring. Until..

Everbody exploded. It was over. Twente scored 0-2. Ajax Won with 1-4. But it was over


Our Champion

And the funny thing. Nobody is talking about football anymore. I live in a strange country
