Last weekend it was konninginnedag (or for the non-Dutch speakers Queen’s day). Being abroad this day is of course celebrated more than it would be if we were in Europe. Coming to think about it, the only times I have been celebrating the Queen’s birthday has been when I have been attending functions at the Embassy while I was abroad. Anyway, the celebration consisted of 3 different components. First there was the reception attended by 700 people. I missed this part as I had to be at home to look after the kids. After that there was a party, or as they say in Dutch Oranjebal, for the Dutch community in Yemen. They had really gone through quite an effort to make it nice, including flying down a band from Holland, Frank and Friends. Anyway this was followed the day after with the konninginnedag for the kids. Below you see a picture from the konninginnedag for the kids, that was held in the garden of one of the employees of the Embassy.
