Queens' Day 2008 / Koninginnedag

(Too cool for school)



The rest of the world spun along its merry way today, but in Holland it was Queens' Day.

 
(Tiejgetje)

Queens'Day (or is that Queensday in English? from 'Koninginnedag') is the celebration of the birthdays of Queens Juliana (RIP) and Beatrix.

A combination booze-fest, garage sale and the 4th of July. It's traditional to wear orange.

After the "More" are some photos and a couple of clips I took in Amsterdam.
