Default Be careful driving this monday

World cup is here and the island is crazy for soccer. Lots of cars have
the flags of their teams on them in case any one is wondering why.

Best place to watch games on the island is at the Cafe at the Ren pier.
They have already painted the paddock orange (the color for dutch sports)
and don't know but they have painted the cow on the top orange last
time it was world cup time.

But Monday is the first game Holland is playing (Hup Holland Hup) and
it starts at 7:30 am. Lots of people will be taking off or watching
the game so be a little more careful driving that day.

My husband went to the general store, wema and Kooiman (sp?) on Friday
and some game or something soccer related was going on. All the sales people were watching the tv and let's just say getting anyone to help him was close to impossible.

Sigh.... I wish I could hang out at the Paddock during this. Must be fun. I always love the atmosphere that a sports event like this creates in bars anyway. (Ha, surprise, surprise) But being in a bar in Aruba would be sooo much better.

Hope EVERYONE heeds your advice about the drinking and driving though...you're right, people can and will get crazy. Get a designated driver, or get a cab.
