Although my weblog has not been updated for over 15 days I promise that when I get back I'll put up some of my favourite pictures on this website.
To all the friends I made in the United States: I'm gonna miss all you guys, if you ever come over to Europe/The Netherlands let me know and I can see if I might be able to meet you there.
To all my friends in Europe: I'm really looking forward to seeing you, talking to you, going out with you guys and most of all eat some friggin' shoarma

I can not help posting pictures on this website, they say so much more than writing stuff down, enjoy:
Jeaneth Puriel is about to be killed by a bunch of international creatures
Well needless to say that our dinner didn't work out the way we have normal dinners.
This vampire joined us later on in the evening (and we ended up playing guitar )
Guido's new obsession... eating swords
And Monty Python was in the house too, the black night obviously stole the kings' coconuts.
Even the little ones go dressed up, this kid didn't understand it all yet though
Ghostface and Gomez Adams posing outside of Franken Hall
I wonder what this killer is up too...
That is more like it

Obviously we considered this as a big honor and took the liberty to raise our flags. Below are some pictures of the ceremony.
Most of these photographs are not shot by me, so credit goes to the people that actually did shoot them.

actually this is an oldie taken some time ago, Sophie is headbanging and I love the way this shot turned out.
Sorry Travis, I know you are not a girl but this is the only picture I did have of your girlfriend.

Arriving in Kansas City (shot taken from the bus)
When we arrived a big car event was going on so I took the liberty of taking some shots from that too.
A classic movietheatre in the american style
A big office complex
A statue outside of Mc Donalds, illustrating the American culture
Streetlife (and some very cool traffic lights)
Are we in Italy now? Nope.. this is still the Kansas City plaza
Starbucks coffee, very very very good coffee and about as American as it gets.
Vincent van Gogh in the museum of art, Kansas City
Badminton shuttlecocks in the garden of that same museum.
A very scary rollercoaster in the themepark "Worlds of fun" that is based on the stories created by Jules Verne

Being girly (and stupid enough) to put on some cream to get a facemask. It actually felt pretty strange as the pictures may show
Chilling at some bbq in the evening just before everybody left.
It's peanutbutter jelly time!

posted by Helmet on 09-10-2006 at 06:52 - 1 commentAh well today I had my first "real" friendly soccergame in the United States, unfortunately there were not any pictures taken because the opponent showed up 2 hours late. Anyway I'm going to tell a bit about the game.
After waiting for about 2 hours our opponent finally showed up with 1 guy short so we had to hand one of our own players to their team.
The first 45 minutes were quite intense with chances from both sides, one of my shots went over by a hair and I had several good assists which lead to no scores though :(
In the second half however things went bad, in the first 10 minutes we got 2 goals (1 from a penalty) against. After 10 minutes I was put back in the game and back in my attack position.
I scored once, but the goal was not counted because the referee had seen a handsball (which I didn't) from a fellow-teammate after which I shot the ball in the net.
Things got worse when an own goal occured out of a cornerkick and finally got topped of by another case of bad defending which resulted in 0-4.
I was and am dead after the game, played most of the 90 minutes and my legs were killing me, next time I'm sure I'm going to score a goal that actually counts as well...
Sorry for the lack of pictures :(
