The past week has been so awesome; I hadn’t expected to do that many Olympics related stuff, but my entire week has revolved around it. And it’s been great.
Last Sunday we visited the Holland Heineken House at Alexandra Palace, the official house of the Netherlands and its sporters during the Olympics. There are big screens to watch all the events on (with commentary in Dutch), Dutch fast food to eat, and a huge party with special guests once all the sporting events are over. Also each time an athlete wins a medal they eventually show up at the House and get their own special ceremony! Sadly the evening we went nobody won anything.
It was awesome to be there though. After watching the men’s 100m finals on the big screen, the entire place turned into a huge party. First 3JS performed on stage and after that DJ Sander van Doorn performed. To be honest, I had no idea who they were; I haven’t been following Dutch music since I left.
Here are the photos of that evening:
