Utrecht

Koninginnedag, Queens day, which was last Saturday, April 30th. There are all kinds of  festivities all over the country. We went to Utrecht to enjoy the freemarkets, music, food and wonderfull weather. I think it was the best weather in a century. I drew this sipping coffee on a terrace next to one of the canals: it shows the highest churchtower of the Netherlands.
At the Freemarkets the locals try to earn some euro's by selling old stuff, or homemade food, involve you in silly games or making music. These kids had a smart idea: they wanted to get rich by sleeping....
Koninginnedag en vrijmarkt in Utrecht, afgelopen zaterdag. Wat een geweldig weer!

Thank you guys. Getting rich by sleeping needs a better idea. R&D developer for a mattress factory?
