Official Visit from Mali to The Netherlands: November 29-December 1, 2011

HM will receive the President and Mrs. Touré of Mali at Noordeinde Palace today,as the couple is on a official visit to The Netherlands from november 29th till december 1st.

TRH The Prince of Orange and Princess Máxima will be in attendance.
HM will host a gala dinner at Noordeinde Palace this evening.

Tommorrow HM will attend a lecture by the president on democratization processes in Africa...

...on a side note:...especially for them the ban on noisy and tricky,thus untrustworthy,aircraft over Dutch airspace was lifted,otherwise their 35 year old government Boeing 727 couldn't land at Rotterdam airport......

^^ Sad that there are only a few pictures I wish we could have better pics (without watermarks) of Maxima receiving the presidential couple. She seems such a good hostess

It's not wise...to say the very least..metal fatigue sets in sooner then that..Always check what sort of aircraft you fly,and what airline,before considering booking a flight.And after that it's all to the Gods..and air traffic controle....
