Arnhem, The Netherlands - 31st May 2008

By: Marjolein

Hi!!

We went to the biggest Bingo of Holland today! There where lots of Dutch singers and Marjolein and Kasper also won something! They both won a replica of the t-shirt the Dutch national team whore during the World Championship of 1974! It was so cool!

This all happened in the footballstadium of the club Vitesse, the Gelredome, in Arnhem (or Arnheim in German). It didn't really look like a stadium, like the Philips Stadion. But that's because the Gelredome was also built for things like performances of big artists and of course superbingo's hihi.

It was really big and there where about 36000 people inside!

Gerard Joling, who is a famous Dutch singer, presented it. He looks a bit weird in is golden suit but Marjolein said that's because he is gay.

Jan Smit also performed. He is from Volendam and he has is own real life soap. He has been a famous singer since he was very small and he sang a song for his grandmother. Marjolein has got one cd of him and she thinks he's cute. O and she has some underpants that say: Mrs Smit, as if she is Jan's wife haha. Marjolein got them from Kasper, he is a bit weird too.

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3689.jpg

Politicus Agnes Kant was also on the party. That is because the goal of the Bingo was to raise money for playgrounds for Dutch children. Agnes Kant also wants more playgrounds.

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3692.jpg

And of course was Rene Froger singing on stage! He also sings in English so I could finally understand some of the songs!

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3694.jpg

This is Edsilia Rombley. She went to the Eurovision Songcontest for the Netherlands twice. She never won.

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3701.jpg

Chompers helped filled in the Bingocards for Marjolein.

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3702.jpg

The biggest act was Frans Bauer! All Dutch people love him because they think he is so normal. The Dutch don't really like it when people are to drama. Frans did kidnap this child on stage but she seems to enjoy herself.

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3725.jpg

The Bingo was also the final for a program called 'Kinderen zingen met Sterren', which means Children sing with Stars. There where 4 teams on stage. The team that sang with the duo Nick and Simon from Volendam won.

Den Bosch, The Netherlands - 10th June 2008

By: Marjolein

Hello,

Because the Dutch footballteam played their first match for the European Cup (against Italy) yesterday (Holland won with 3-0!!) we decided to play some ToyVoyagersfootball!

I was in the team with Pingu and Roots Bear.

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3764.jpg

But then Davy attacked!

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3765.jpg

He tried to score... But Pingu got the ball!!

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3766.jpg

We turned the game around, I attacked Chompers! I played the ball to Roots, Roots played it back to me. I tried to score...

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3767.jpg

And I scored!!

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3768.jpg

Woohoo! My team won!! Now I can't write anymore because I have to get back to some more footballmatches!

Regards Nick

I had already told you the Netherlands won from Italy with 3-0 yesterday, hadn't I? Marjolein bought some newspapers to show how the European Cup lives in Holland. All the newspapers are orange! :D

By: Marjolein

Hello,

On the day the Dutch footballteam played their second match, I went to the zoo! It was in Rotterdam and the zoo was called Diergaarde Blijdorp.

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3776.jpg

I was so happy because you know what I saw? REINDEERS!!

Groningen, The Netherlands - 20th June 2008

By: Marjolein

Dear Pandamao,

I went back to Groningen! It was Marjoleins birthday and she celebrated it in her birthtown. This is because she was afraid none of her relatives would show up at her birthday when she would celebrate it in Den Bosch.

Marjoleins parents live in a suburb called Lewenborg. This used to be farmland, untill the seventies when they started building houses on it. There is still a farm and some farmland where sheep graze now.

This is what Marjoleins parents' house looks like:

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF4053.jpg

I met the dog Amber. She is old like me.

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF4049.jpg

The two black cats called Dribbel and Garfield run off before I could be in the photo with them! Crazy cats!

Yours,

Nick

Warffum, The Netherlands - 28th June 2008

By: Marjolein

Hello!

In the province of Groningen, the village Warffum is every year an international dance-festival called Op Roakeldais. This is in the dialect of Groningen and means something like 'hoping for the best'.

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF4059.jpg

People from all over the world come to Warffum for this festival that takes about a week. Dancegroups from for example Mali in Africa:

Poland:

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF4073.jpg

On these photo's they where all getting ready for the parade in the centre of Warffum. It's a beautifull Dutch village.

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF4079.jpg

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF4080.jpg

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF4084.jpg

After this we went to the hobby market. Marjolein bought some presents for her father who's 50th birthday is today. In the Netherlands is costum to buy mustard for people who are 50. And the also say that when you are 50 'you say Abraham'. So Marjolein also bought some stuff with Abraham on it. When a women is 50 the will 'see Sara'.

In a big tent some groups from the parade also danced on stage during a performance called 'The world dances in Warffum'.

These are the Scottish:

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF4093.jpg

Then it was time to go back to Groningen with the train. It's a journey of about half an hour.

Nieuweschans, The Netherlands - 6th July 2008

By: Marjolein

Hello,

In Nieuweschans, in the province Groningen, was a very cool festival today. It was called Celtic Midsummer Festival (in Dutch:Keltisch Midzomer Festival).

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF4298.jpg

It was so cool! Lots of people where dressed up.

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF4283.jpg

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF42981.jpg

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF42831.jpg

Asterix and Obelix where even there! There was a battle between the grown-ups and the children and the children won everytime! Of course I was cheering for them :D

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF4296.jpg

We had beers and spare ribs.

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF42961.jpg

And we danced to Celtic music from the Dutch band Rapalje. And the German band called Faun.

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF4297.jpg

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF4292.jpg

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF4291.jpg

Marjolein coloured a candle and her boyfriend Kasper got a very cool stone mug with 'Rapalje' on it! They also bought special tea. Marjolein's mother bought lots of juwelery and she flirted with Obelix! He didn't have a shirt on and was getting very red in the sun. So she offered him some sunblock! ;)

I had a great time!!
