No Blue monday for the Rotterdamsebaan, but the start of the drilling process following a lot of nice activities and anouncements the past days. Last Friday Cora van Nieuwenhuizen, Boudewijn Revis and Ellen ten Damme baptized the drill and they anounced the name of the massive drill together. The drill is named after Hollands future Queen ''Catharina Amalia daughter of King Willem Alexander. The name popped up after pushing the red button and hoisting up the enlarged fabolous Mondriaan artwork, Ellen @ten Damme - the tunnelpatin - sang the miners song ‘’Glück Auf’’. After the anouncement the preest baptized the drill and the Holy Santa Barbara statuette, the patroness of the tunnel workers
