Wow! What a day of madness and fun.

There is a ‘free market’ on this day and many people take the opportunity to rid themselves of things they don’t want anymore (or as we suspected the things they bought last year on Koninginnedag!)

We got up at 6:30am made our way to Amstelveen.

We had a stall with our neighbours Ingeborg, Anita and Thomas. We didn’t make much money but we did get a stereo and a blender/food processor combo for great prices.

Amstelveen was quiet compared to the amount of people in Amsterdam but to us it was quite busy enough. It was also a stunning day so we enjoyed wandering around in the sunshine seeing all the orange everywhere.

That evening we sat with more neighbours on the Nieuwemeerdijk and ate pasta, drank wine and played some music for everyone while watching the “party boats” come back from Amsterdam.

What a lovely day.
