Yesterday was Queensday in the Netherlands when we celebrate the birthday of Queen Beatrix. Everybody has a day off and the custom is to sell your attic on the streets and wear something orange because the Queen belongs to the House of Orange dynastie. It was a micracle that the weather changed for one day in summer with temperatures of 26 degrees C (78.8 F).
Because of the warm weather I decided to stay in Almere where in the Lumiere parc a big free market of toys was. Children sell their own toys for a few euros and with the money they earn, they can buy other toys.
Some try to earn some money with their talents.
This boy had invented something very original, He threw an orange through a pipe and another had to hammer it which was very difficult because it passed by very fast.
So everybody was enjoying this free summerday with thanks to the queen who reached the age of 74 and still is working, no retire for her.
