Saint Nicolas

Had to do some shopping in the city and found myself in the middle of the "Sinterklaas" welcome parade in Almere.



I stood frontrow, couldn't move to the left or the right so then I decided to make some pbotos.



Two Pete's offering some peppernuts to a child.

And two Pete's had climed on the roof.
