I still don't really understand why Mxima (and some other ladies) wear one glove and not the other. Why wear gloves at all if you already know you are not gonna wear one of them.

The return Dinner and concert last night looked relaxed and not too formal and the protocol police weren't too aghast.




The Dutch King and Queen were in Cork today on the south Coast and paid a visit to Fort Camden, Crosshaven, Cork (Which was built by the Catholic Jacobites to keep William of Orange out).

The King and Queen also paid a visit to the city of Cork and were welcomed at City Hall by the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress.
