This time Kevin’s parents came to visit us. They stayed for about 4 days, including Queen’s Day. We had a great time just walking around in the city, enjoying the beautiful weather.
We met a couple of velocipedes
And looked at gekraakt (squatted) houses
Queen’s Day, April 30th, is a celebration of the queen’s birthday. Actually, it’s not the current queen’s birthday, but the birthday of an earlier queen. Anyway, the whole country go mad in Orange – there are orange wigs, hats, clothes, boats and the likes everywhere! The reason for this is that the royal family’s last name is actually Oranie (as in Orange).
Notice the orange banner attached to the flag, and the orange hat in the background
Shannon even had to get an orange T-shirt 😉
