Real Dutch Madrid


Hi, we are back from our short vacation in Germany and still taking it slow this week. I will read the new comments and answer my email messages this week, but bear with me please.
Just before our holiday I went to see Arsenal, Lazio Rome, Atletico Madrid and Ajax in the LG Amsterdam tournament - together with my daughter Sosha who is a huge Ajax fan. Wesley Sneijder is her favorite player and we saw a fantastic goal (click here) that he scored against Atletico - which happened to be his last goal for Ajax, because tonight we heard that Wesley Sneijder will join Real Madrid for 27 million euros... Sad news for Ajax fans like us, but it's nice to see that Real Madrid is slowly becoming a Dutch football team (Ruud van Nistelrooij already joined their ranks and recently Feyenoord player Royston Drenthe moved to Real Madrid for 13 million euros.)
Have a look at the video to see why Madrid wanted to pay so much money for the Dutch midfielder Wesley Sneijder...

That's a SHORT vacation? This is a bad thing about the US: we get very little time off from our jobs. (A worse thing is that so many people here don't even use what they're entitled to.) I've always envied my Australian cousins their long vacations.
