I spent my weekend in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, also known as Den Bosch. It is a city in province of Brabant, near German border in southern Netherlands.I can not tell you much about the history and popular sites in the city but I can say that the atmosphere and surroundings are pretty far from Rotterdam. I was invited there by my friends Bob and Dirk, who I was honoured to meet in Chelyabinsk, Russia while doing my internship.
I am in a lucky situation because some of my Russian friends from last summer happened to come and study in Netherlands also! Nastya and Seva arrived last friday, so on Saturday we met.
Our Dutch friends had planned some surprise program for the day. First we went to the waterpark, which was quite awesome since I haven’t been in such place for many years. We had lots of fun messing in the water slides and somehow we managed to survive from the park without any major injuries! Video proof can be found below.
After the water park we paid a visit to Dirk’s home where his mom cooked us dinner. I am very thankful for the hospitality and the manner we were taken care of on the visit! After the dinner we headed for another unknown location.
After the car ride we found ourselves in Eindhoven, where we went for PSV Eindhoven football match! One of my goals for the whole journey was to get to watch as much top football as possible so I was very pleased with this event. The game against Utrecht didn’t definitely turn out as a classic but it was still fun to watch. Eventually PSV won the game 1-0 after a struggle. They controlled the game from start to end but the ball didn’t seem to find its way to the net. After the match we went to party in the city and the atmosphere after the victory could easily be seen on the streets and bars.
At night we returned back to Den Bosch. Today, after a nutritious breakfast (sausage rolls and bread) I found my way back to Rotterdam. The weekend was definitely nice, It was really great to spend time with friends after a few months and also to get away from the pile of work I have waiting on my desk!
