We got a free potato dinner on Museumplien, where we ate with thousands of others at picnic tables. The May 4 photo shows two people we talked with. Everyone has been friendly, although uncurious about us or the USA. On May 5, the Dutch celebrate the liberation of the country from Germany near the end of WWII by getting together in places all over the country for community dinners on bevrijdingsdag: liberation day. The biggest one was in museumplein, where we were. There was dancing, singing, and meeting new people. And no mention of any imaginary supernatural beings.
