Throwback Thursday: Going Dutch in Amsterdam

Yesterday, the Netherlands and Argentina battled it out for the last spot in the finals of the World Cup. The winner of the match would take on Germany in the championship. I was a bit torn during the match. I have some Dutch heritage and I've visited the Netherlands, so part of me wanted the men in orange to pull through. But I also wanted to see a South American team make it to the finals, and Argentina was a bit of an underdog, so my heart went out to them. In the end, Argentina prevailed! And while I am incredibly happy for them, and I plan to cheer them on against Germany, I couldn't help but be a little sad for the Netherlands. I had their back four years ago when they took on Spain in the finals, and this year I was rooting for them the whole tournament. As they left the field yesterday, I couldn't help but think back to my visit to Amsterdam back in 2008 and how much fun I had partying with the Dutch. In honor of the Netherlands and throwback Thursday, here are a few images from that memorable trip…
