I took this photo exactly on this day two years ago in the tulip fields by the famous park Keukenhof near Leiden. Apart from its second anniversary, I decided to post this photo today also because of the coming King’s day, the biggest national celebration in the Netherlands (up until several years ago it was Queen’s day and the date was 4 days later). The photo seems a good way to congratulate all Dutch people as it bears so many classic Dutch signs – the tulips, the Dutch flag, and unfortunately the (almost) omnipresent dark clouds. Of course it’s missing the usual canals and bikes, but I promise you lots of them in one of my future posts from my visit to Utrecht and Amsterdam several weeks ago. In the meantime, happy King’s day to everyone celebrating and hope you enjoy the Dutch hip-hop song!
