Our Barge, Odysseus

Sunday, June 29, 2008


As I mentioned last year, they do festivals in Europe and you may remember one of our last "cloggy" experiences last year was the Shantykoor (beer)fest in Leimuiden. Saturday was a great street festival, literally on "the other side of the tracks" in Maastricht. We crossed the river, went through the train station, crossed the A-2 (the big highway), and ended up in a street festival/swap meet with a complete cross section of available entertainment.
On the main stage was the local choral group, one number featuring a cowboy theme.

They were followed by several youth groups from the local dance school. They did all the Britney Spears power moves.

Following them was a West African drum and dance band.

All of this in about 1 1/2 hours. LA's got nothing on Holland!

And what street festival wouldn't be complete without the cute little Dutch girl!
