Last month Kria was invited to a gala dinner at the Royal Palace at the Dam in Amsterdam was exceptional and impressive! No pictures allowed inside, but he filmed his approach to the palace with people waiting to see all the VIPs making their entrance.
We were all personally and warmly welcomed by the King and Queen. The dinner was in the opulent ‘Burgerzaal’ (picture from an article by Beau Monde) under the scrutiny of huge statue of Atlas carrying the world, under which a chamber orchestra was playing soothing violin music.
A great chance to meet with the corps diplomatique and other representatives from the Dutch & international arts and culture sector! Kria rekindled with the ambassador of Rwanda and was even seated next to the ambassador of Peru!
