Thinking of ... School?


Wassenaar is known to many as a city of expats. According to the city's website, of the 26,000 inhabitants, 13% are not dutch nationals. There are several reasons for having a large expat community: it's close to The Hague, with all of the government insitutions, international court, and Royal Dutch Shell headquarters. It's very green and spacious. And the American School of The Hague is located here. (In the area of The Hague, there's also an International school and a British school). The pic above is a statue outside of the ASH entrance; the building itself (below) has one side that reminds me of a waving flag.

FInally I get to see the building! I have no idea where it is in Wassenaar. Some of my friends have their kids in the American school. I'm surprised that "only" 13% of the population is not Dutch, I was expecting a higher figure.
NB: Are you going to the next Images night club? I am thinking of joining
