We had terrible news on tv yesterday! There was a plain accident in Tripoli, Libia, it crashed just before the landing and there are about 90 persons dead, among them about 61 Dutchmen. So all passengers and crew are dead, only one child survived the crash, till now.
They have no idea what caused the accident, may be it will still take a few days before it will be reveiled, if it will be truly reveiled.
Of course our sympathy goes out to all family and friends of the deceased.
In a few weeks, on the 9th of June, we have elections for a new gouvernment, so you can imagine all the parties are running election campaignes. As we have about 12 different parties to choose from for the House of Representatives it isn't always easy for us to choose one. Normally we always have a gouvernment based on a coalition, but the memebers can be of importance. But they stopped their campaigns now for a day or two, because of this aweful accident.
Well, you can imagine that in all the newsprogrammes they are talking about the crash, sometimes just telling over and over the same thing, because new facts just will come out very slowly, especially because it happened in Libia. And although it is a shock to everybody and a sad thing that happened,I wished they only came with a news item when there really is new news! What good is doing all the speculating what might have happened?
Okay, that was about the most important thing that happened yesterday. I really don;t have much more to tell you, just did some errands, that's all. But I have a funny picture to share with you. I made it when we were visiting several faires. And look what people do here, when there isn't a place to park your bike!
