You Just Haven't Earned It Yet, Baby

One of the interesting buildings I came across in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. September 2009.

During one weekend we spent in the Netherlands, my buddy Freddy and I paid 45 Euros for nine hours at a regular car park in Amsterdam, and we spent 50 Euros on a parking ticket which we got for half an hour in a no parking zone in Rotterdam. That's just way over the top, if you ask me.

I just came back from the city; of course I watched the football match England vs. Germany with some buddies from university. I said before the match that I'm gonna support whoever wins and there's no doubt the German side deserved to reach the quarter finals.

Now I'm back to doing stuff for uni... the semester's end is coming soon.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

um that seems like a lot of money!??!?!? I'm not sure what the currency exchange is but sheesh.

It was a good game to watch reguardless. We watched it in Gatlinberg, TN in this small "pub" type place and the people there were really rude. I wanted to punch our waitress.

p.s. if I saw a building like that in real life, I think I would just stop and stare at it for like... an hour.

No matter what the currency exchange is, it's too much :-)

Why? What'd they do?

I must admit I took my time just standing there, watching the sun rise up from the buildings behind me, the way it changed the light upon this strange building, and then walked around and inside the patio of the building which is free for everyone to enter... I love stuff like that :-)

Ahh free! It makes my WEEK with little discoveries like that. When I go out places I find myself observing on an abnormal level like that... I'll just watch and not even really say anything.

And the waitress was just super rude. Like... wore sunglasses the entire time she was talking to us which I don't mind so much but threw our food on table, messed up our friends order COMPLETELY, didn't come back to the table unless we asked her to or got someone else to get her.... yeah. I didn't even order anything. Going hungry was better than spending my money on that lol.

Same here :-) Oh I totally have to scan this short article from out of an Adventure magazine, it was about somewhere in Ohio... the best place for watching the night sky.

That's rude indeed. I wanna see people's eyes when I'm talking to them lol. Well, I bet she didn't get a tip :-)
