Making True Grit

Last weekend I’ve seen True Grit at a lovely movie theater in Amsterdam. Really liked the atmosphere of the raw wild west, which wasn’t the typical Hollywood glamour version of it. Jeff Bridges,who plays one of the main characters Rooster Cogburn, has been taking some wonderful pictures on set. Above is my favourite, check all the others here: Making True Grit. Via

It’s over

Four weeks filled with friends, new-made friends, excitement, sportsmanship, beers, bars and of course football! We came, we saw and we did our best. It wasn’t enough, so congrats to Spain!*

I watched the World Cup final between The Netherlands and Spain at Museumplein. It was one, big, orange sea of madness. The picture below shows what it looked like this morning. It’s sad…

Hup Holland Hup!

I know the World Cup 2010 started last week, but with The Netherlands playing against Denmark, today will be the real kick-off for me. Love both countries to bits, but of course I’ll be rooting for my home country. I’m so excited!

 Update: We won with 2-0 by playing average. Hope we’ll kick-ass the next time and show the world what true football should be like!
