Amsterdam is making preparations for the inauguration of April 30th. The National Memorial Monument at Dam square is cleaned.
Some buildings have a red, white, blue and orange decoration, the colours of our flag and the Royal Family of Orange.
Maybe I was to early but I was a bit disappointed by all this. I had expected a week before the event to see more creativity.
The bells of the Palace were ringing, which I had never heard before. I even didn't know there were bells up there. I think they will ring after the inauguration of the King.
At least the shops have made appropriate royal shopwindows.
I don't think I will ever wear orange shoes.
As long it is orange, even a bookshop is ready for the event.
But eventually I passed this theater which understands how to decorate.
I will go back another time to see if there is more to see.
