Time for one more pic from the arrival of Sinterklaas. We're back in Wassenaar ... I certainly wouldn't want to offend any Amsterdam fans like I did yesterday (see comments).

These "Pieten" were helping Sinterklass by keeping the crowd entertained during the procession through town.

See you tomorrow for Theme Day.

Every time I look at your Pieten pictures I smile. The Dutch look so weird with black hair and skin! Never seen the Pieten in person, we'll have to arrange a trip to visit our beloved friends (they live near Arnhem) this time of year soon.
