Etiam pulvinar consectetur dolor sed malesuada. Ut convallis euismod dolor nec pretium. Nunc ut tristique massa.

Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.


We’ve been to visit Fi, Wim and Stephanie in their new house in Amsterdam.  The girls loved playing with each other, the dads loved sitting in brown bars drinking Belgian beer, and the mums probably had a good time too.

On the Sunday we watched the arrival of Sinterklaas by boat from Spain into Amsterdam (well, we didn’t get up early enough to see the actual flotilla, but we caught the subsequent parade), accompanied by his black helper Zwarte Piet (Black Pete) – a slave dealer who carts all the naughty children off to Africa in his sack once he’s emptied it of sweets, and sells them into slavery.  I don’t think you can see hundreds of city employees black up with Afro wigs and lipstick anywhere else apart from Holland.

Father Christmas was pretty good though.
