The exposition shows paintings and other items from the collection of King Willem II. He had a large colection of paintings, for whih he had a special hall build at Kneuterdijk palace (the Gothic hall). However, after his death his heirs were shocked by the amount of debts of the King. His wife and children had the royal collection auctioned. The biography of Willem II shows that they auctioned it for too little money. Also, it says that in the end the king was not as bankrupt as was thought. After the finances were straightened out (which took nearly a decade) it seems that there was enough left and that the auction could have been prevented. Sadly the paintings left the country. But nice that his successor has the opportunity to appreciate them shortly.

We are suffering from a collective case of small-country-syndrome: Obama is here and the news is broadcasting non-stop, half the county needs to work from home as most of the highways between Amsterdam-The Hague have been blocked, and most big hotels close to The Hague are booked and some villages are almost cut-of from the outside world. The navy is patroling in the Northsea and fighter jets are patrolling in the sky. Apparently any road where Obama/ American generals are passing will be temporarily transnational soil where American laws overrule ours.

Obama just visited the Rijksmuseum, and he got a tour of 20 minutes of the museum & held a press conference in front of Rembrandts Nightwatch. But of course he had the advantage that there were no other visitors who usually ruin much of the visit to any museum (usually it is almost impossible to take a good look at Vermeer's Milkmaid).

Tonight they will go to the Cats House, the residence of the PM, which was restaured a few years ago in a most horrible way, and tonight they will also attend a dinner at Huis ten Bosch in the Orange Hall, with the king and queen.

Tuesday the circus will leave.

I don't think TRF is the place to air ones national leanings. There are many right or left leaning blogs and website to spew whatever hatred for national politics that are not on a royal blog. I don't hate my President and I don't think anything happening would be different for another U.S. President.
