Norway - Netherlands football at Ullevaal stadion

I was at the Norway - Netherlands football game last night, which the Dutch ended up winning 1-0 (completely undeserved, but that's often the case in football :)). I wasn't allowed to sit with the 20 Norwegians I was with because I had orange gear on, so I convinced them to let me in on the visiting supporters side. Seeing as there were some free seats on row number 1 I ended up sitting pretty much directly behind the goal that the Dutch scored the goal in, in the second half. The scorer, van Bommel, in fact ended up cheering directly in front of me. The first pic is my own, the second is from where I was supposed to be sitting; you can actually make me out as the circled orange nut standing next to the guy in the black sweater.

Fall in Oslo

Fall has definitely arrived and the colours are pretty spectactular. This is a view out over Maridalen lake, Oslo's water supply. In the distance you can just barely make out some of buildings that make up Grefsen, one of Oslo's neighbourhoods.

Fortis ad

Great Fortis ad spotted in Schiphol Amsterdam airport the day after they were saved by the governments. Maybe they should have taken their own advice?
