All dressed up and nowhere to go (Or: Prinsjesdag and other stories)

As I noted earlier this month, last Tuesday was Prinsejesdag, a day for Dutch royalty and politicians to ride in a carriage through the city centre and then announce the yearly budget. Thanks to corona the ride was cancelled, the events were scaled back and fans were told to stay home. But one top fan who shows up every year ignored the warning to stay home and came anyway:

Marco said he’s a Dutch inventor and a singer (check out his Wikipedia page in Dutch). I say he’s just crazy. But maybe the safe kind of crazy? He took a swimming tube and painted it gold, to signify keeping people a meter and a half away. He also recreated the golden carriage in miniature (check out the article for a better picture of that).
