Festive Fever

This weekend the inauguration fever has started in Amsterdam. When we entered the city we were welcomed by waving flags.

The Haarlemmer street is beautiful decorated  with crowns.

All the bridges have flags too.

The stock exchange.

The departmentstore the Bijenkorf has put two huge crowns on top of the building. As this is Dam square where everything is going to happen, platforms are raised for the press, the black trailer is Dutch television installing their equipment.

This firm for professional decorations has put the flags out.

The former post-office now shopping mall Magna Plaza .

What do you think of this royal tramway? There is only one like this riding in Amsterdam and I spotted it just in time to have a picture.

  4. Oh my goodness - you must be just tingling from head to toe. I know I would be. Remember when only last week, you mentioned not too many decorations - well JUMPINS, what a change. I love the streets, royal tramway, flags - all beautiful and a great History is sent to unfold and you will be a part of this - we will be a part of this through your eyes. For this, I thank you from my Canadian heart.

  6. Die tram is echt bijzonder! De grote kronen bovenop de Bijenkorf zijn ook feestelijk, maar eigenlijk is alles dat wel..
