My first real Halloween ever was only last year, in Ireland, as Halloween is not a big thing back in the Netherlands. Yesterday, the 31st of October it was finally there, USA Halloween!
As one of our friends was celebrating her birthday as well, we headed out for dinner to La Tasca, a Spanish tapas bar. (surprisingly funny thing is that I already went there with my mom and dad when they were over). We were with a big group of friends, and Elisa her dad and his girlfriend where there as well! Great group together. After quite some tapas, and a couple more glasses of Sangria, it was time to go home, and get ready. We headed out towards K-street, to the club called Mate, which is a sushi restaurant at day and night, and after dinner turns into a club.
The costumes were ridiculously funny, as we had a Gangster Alice in Wonderland, a Doctor, A French Farmerboy, A Feyenoord player (and it was not even me, as I gave my stuff to Elisa’s friend Max who was over for the weekend!), Cleopatra, P Diddy with his fur coat and 2 little devils. Well, Europeans now how to party on Halloween now, and the other way around, Americans have met us as well. Pleasure.
After quite a long night meeting many new people and friends, it was time to go home and rest. It was an intensive weekend again, but great great great fun! We have a very nice group of friends together, and come along very well.
We will just have to wait for the new experience in my life now, Thanksgiving. 26th of November. The pre-plans have been made already, and we have invited some American friends as well, as most of the students will be returning home for the weekend to celebrate Thanksgiving with their families. All the people of our floor, who are staying, will be invited by the Europeans. The idea is to start cooking 3-4 days before, so we can have a long night of eating, drinking and being together!
