This fine (and slightly windy) Sunday was spent with my two best girlfraaans IB and E. We were the remaining three in our little ‘Animals’ group and as sad as that was, we weren’t gonna let that get us down. After a Friday night thats a little too fuzzy and a more civilised Saturday night baking biscotti and trying to master the art of headstands, our Sunday activity was the attend the annual Parkpop festival in Zuiderpark in The Hague.
Parkpop is a free music festival held each year on the last weekend in June in The Hague. For awhile there it was the largest free music free in Europe but Poland’s Przystanek Woodstock and Austria’s Donauinselfest have rudely taken over. In comparison to Australia’s music festivals such as Big Day Out or Stereosonic, it didn’t seem to be like a huge festival but we still had a blast nonetheless. Parkpop also happened to coincide with the soccer (sorry, football) match between the Netherlands and Mexico. They played the match live on the huge screens so we were surrounded by a sea of Dutch people in bright orange clothing who almost created a tsunami of orange when Holland defeated Mexico.
All in all, a wonderful day with wonderful people in a wonderful (and proud) country.
