Hartjesdag 2010 - de verkeersregelaar
There was only one Hartjesdag this year. 'De Gemeente werkte niet mee'. One problem was the cost of safety and security. Whereas before, the organisers hired students to put on a blue and red vest and patrol the Zeedijnk area, this year, they had to hire in professional traffic regulators, who no doubt cost a lot more. Here is one of them, standing at the entrance to the Zeedijk telling his superiors that it had become less busy.
Had a wonderful afternoon with Rob and Ghislaine. A pity we were told at 10.30 already that we were no longer allowed to stand outside with our drinks, yet another sign of an over-regulated and over-planned society.
