I arrived on New Year’s Day, having spent the actual countdown to the new year in the air over the Atlantic. Hmmmm…I didn’t even know when the new year officially arrived, as I had no idea what time zone I was in at any given time during my journey.

It was intriguing to see the city after the revelry of New Year’s Eve. Several things struck me as odd: the public urinals and red tickertape everywhere. Shop owners were cleaning their sidewalks…with hoses in addition to brooms. When I arrived at Dam Square, the public works department was busy washing it…hosing it down.

I can only imagine what Queen’s Day is like.
