Dutch tourist detained till 2.30 a.m. at policestation in Alanya.

ALANYA - In the night of february 1st 2002 were the dutch divers E.K. and R.v.d.V. for several hours detained at the policestation in Alanya. After the friendly soccermatch Turkey-Netherlands it appeared E.K.'s wallet had disappeared. At first the thought was "forgotten in the hotel", but also there was no sign of it. A consequent search action with the help of a dive-lamp didn't bring any relief. In a local pub the police was told of the incident, and there had to be waited for their arrival. Some beers later they arrived and an endless discussion started.  At the end of all it was necessary to go to the policestation to file a complaint. As a true buddy R.v.d.V. volunteered to go with E.K. while the rest of the divers waited in the pub. At 2 oçlock the pub closed and they went to the hotel to wait for both men.


At the policestaion it appeared that filing the complaint wasn't that easy. 

And when finally succeeded, the officer hit a wrong button and had to start all over again. But the biggest disaster was that there was no toiletpaper at all at the policestation. The pieces of paper that were offered where all of a wrong structure and wouldn't satisfy the purpose.But at the end there was a solution found and this also could be accomplished.

Turkey - Netherlands remains undecided in favour of the guestland [rodevisjes.jpg] [rodevisjes2.jpg] New diveleader appointed
ALANYA - Wednesday evening on the soccergrounds of Alanya a friendly soccergame has been played between Turkey and the Netherlands. This game, at first organised by Hassan from hotel Azak Beach (who later appeared not to be present) was played by 4 dutch gentlemen accompanied by Hassan from the leatherbusiness against Murat from restaurant Maestro en 4  other "Young Turks". At this game, "Our boys" played a very good game. Especcially the somewhat older K.V. appeared to be a real ball-miracle. The from Ajax wellknown R.v.d.V. disappointed somewhat by being afraid to comromise his contract. L.S. in the goal, kept the goal perfect closed! E.K. gave each ball all his power direct to the goal. Probably the others scored just a little bit more... The last dive from Dutch divers with Dolphin Dive was a very special dive. After being observed for a while, the boss from D.D. has decided that K.V. has all the

abilities necessary to be a good diveleader. Being told this, K.V. gave the divers a marvellous last dive. Besides lots of octopusses and murenes he arranged esspecially for the young R.v.d.V. a mermaid!

Coca Cola completely on top

With horror the remaining buddys some the aboved mentioned mister grasping for the glass and taking the stairs to the fourth floor. Enormous their surprise when it seemed he didn't spill a drop! Glory to  K.V.

You can charge up to 50DM using the words: Vaseline feels good!
