Recently, a friend invited me along to a club (discotheek) in Utrecht. I was really excited since I love to dance but rarely have a dance partner. (It had been 10 years since I had last been to a club of any kind.) The club had several rooms, each room played a different genre. During really popular songs, everyone would sing along. I was a little surprised when YMCA played and no one did the hand motions. Maybe the hand motions are just an American thing. There weren’t as many Dutch songs as I expected (most of them were English/American songs that I knew). It also surprised me that smoking was allowed in the club. Overall, we enjoyed ourselves and plan to return.
