We left Eindhoven when Marc texted me, that heâ€™s on his way to the Jaarbeursplein Central Station. Unfortunately he had to wait a lot for me, coz there was a huge traffic jam on the motorway, so I arrived in Utrecht an hour later. When I got off the bus I couldnâ€™t seen him anywhere, so I sent him a msg that iâ€™m waiting for him at the escalators. 3 mins later he showed up, we hugged each other, he grabbed my bag (so he looked like a TOURIST, too) and we were on our way to a bar, where I got my welcome beer and bitterballen (they were so hot that i burnt my mouth with them, but they are definitely tasty).
Oh, Crazy Joe Devola (the coolest rubber duckie in the world) came with Marc to greet me:)
We were talking in the pub for an hour or so then we headed to Marcâ€™s place. When we arrived, Marc showed me around in his apartment and my first thing was to unpack the beers and we filled up the refrigerator with them (there were already a lot of Dutch beer in it, too). It was time for another beer, i got a lemon flavored Dutch beer and Marc tried my fave Hungarian beer, called Soproni. Then I took a shower. Then Marc took a shower and when he came back he suspected me of battering his showerhead. But I havenâ€™t done anything to it, I SWEAR!!!
I was really tired and Marc got very sleepy from the Soproni, so we decided to take a nap. When I woke up about 1,5 hours later Marc was already awake and we headed to the city center to check out one of the rock bars. The barâ€™s called Stairway to Heaven, and itâ€™s really cool, there are guitars from famous bands on the walls. There was a nice black one where we were sitting signed by AC/DC. Marc told me I can not take it home with me. I got sad.
Then we went to another pub where we met up with two of Marcâ€™s friends. I got here a booze called cockroach, it was fun, coz it was burning and I had to drink it before the straw melts.
One of Marcâ€™s friends went home; Marc, Sweder and me went to check out club Trivoli. We had fun there till closing time (4a.m). Marc wanted to get a taxi to get home, but I convinced him to walk home. We made it in 50 mins. I enjoyed the walk in that very early morning, but I guess Marc got a little tired. So thank you Marc :)
