Happy 2011!!! G and I wish you a happy and healthy 2011!
The annual celebration of the Oud en Nieuw is practically a global party. This was our 3rd year to ring in the New Year in Amsterdam. Over the last two years, we braved the cold and the crowds in de Dam (Dam Square) and Museumplein (Museum Square). But this year we had a few friends over for dinner then trekked up to the roof to enjoy the city wide fireworks and I think it was our best Dutch NYE. Sparklers in one hand and champagne in the other, we counted down to midnight several hours before our family and friends in the States. The first hour of the New Year was a spectacular fireworks display illuminating every corner of the Amsterdam sky. Fireworks surrounded us and it seemed like it was our own personal show.
