Default Friday will be WILD!!!

World cup game Holland v. Brazil starts at 10. Don't expect to get much done in the morning because the whole island will be watching the game!

Orange is the team color of Holland - so you will have noticed already that the island (including the Paddock downtown) is orange. You will see team
flags on all the cars.

They will prob. show people watching the game live on the ren. pier at the Cafe.

The party will start early and most likely will last the rest of the day!

A great chance to see how really popular soccer is!!!

I am here on Aruba now...and I can tell you Lizzardo is right! It is crazy here. So much fun to see all the dutch, brazilian, argentinian flags there are. Even the vacationers are getting into it. The beach bar TV's are broadcasting the world cup play. You can hear all the cheers at the bar! Really exciting. They are much more into it this year than it seems they were four years ago! It will be crazy and fun tommorrow.

Places that will be totally wild - bingoes, paddock and the cafe.

I think it might be a little wilder since it's against brazil which is
the #2 rooted for team on the island.

Four years ago I made the mistake of getting my hair done during
the final Dutch game - it was a party in the salon!

Will be a crazy place tomorrow - Enjoy!!! Don't forget to
wear some orange - the locals will love you!

What a night to be in Aruba only wish I was there to see it.

Go Oranje, maybe they can inflict a little payback for the US if they end up playing Ghana next.
