Koninginnedag 2007

Today is a national holiday, called Koninginnedag (i.e. Queen's Day), and much to my surprise Jobsworth decided some time last week that he didn't need me to come in. At first, I toyed with the idea of joining the festivities in Amsterdam, but my last physiotherapy session's left me with quite a hurty leg, so I went into town to see what was going on there instead. For once, I thought to bring a camera!

Obviously, some people enjoyed being driven around in a horse-drawn carriage

while others had a nose round the flower market

and the kiddies went on the merry-go-round

I pass a woman holding an enormous candy floss

the sound of distant drums...

becomes that of drums being played very near

and now I've had enough and head for home
