Hopefully your NYE was just as great as mine. I missed the last two editions, because of illness, so I partied extra loud this time. It started with a lovely diner at friends, followed by watching the fireworks on a roof (freezin’ cold, but luckily I wore my new pluche, animal printed earmuffs), followed by downtown dancing, ending up at a private party at a friend’s place and arriving home in the late morning.
The best part of it was that Maaike, one of my closest friends, was back in Amsterdam for the holidays. She is studying at the Film Academy in NYC and I miss her so much, so it was really great to celebrate the arrival of 2009 together with her!
The sad part of New Year’s Eve was the bloodshed of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Will it ever stop?
Sign this petition to support ceasefire!
I hope 2009 will bring us closer to (more) peace on earth.
