The Canal Parade is in full swing now. The first boats to come by were from the City of Amsyerdam. The first one had dancers, the second a marriage in full swing. I knew that Mayor Cohen would marry five Dutch-American couples, not that it would happen during the parade!
Congratulations to Hans and Ira, whose nuptuals we witnessed and of course the other four couples.
This in honour of our fourhundred year relationship with America, specifically the New York area.
