A surprised T-bird tourist in Amsterdam

Thunderbird alumni in Amsterdam, Netherlands, welcomed a surprised tourist to their First Tuesday dinner in January 2014. One of the local T-birds took the tram to the restaurant near Amtel Station but realized after he boarded that he had forgotten the exact address. Looking around for help, he spotted another passenger wearing a Thunderbird shirt and asked for directions. Unfortunately, the man wearing the shirt was only passing through the city on a trip from Texas. “It was his first time ever in Amsterdam,” chapter leader Brigitte Opel ’95 said. “He soon found himself dragged to our dinner.” She said the story provides a helpful reminder for all Thunderbird alumni when they travel. “If you are looking for company,” she said, “make sure to wear your Thunderbird shirt.”
