Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I never got to hear how this tangle was settled... Any news you know about the location of the US Embassy?

City Council - June 2

    Burgemeester Deetman gaat onder druk van de Haagse gemeenteraad aan de Amerikanen twee alternatieve locaties voorleggen voor de nieuwe vestiging van hun ambassade.

    De verhuizing zal daardoor niet binnen vijf jaar plaatsvinden. De nieuwe locaties zijn: de hondenrenbaan - Oostersportpark - aan de Benoordenhoutseweg, en het rugbyterrein aan de Theo Mann-Bouwmeesterlaan - nabij hockey sportpark HDM.

Both locations are within city limits of Wassenaar.

I was in Spain those early days of June... Somehow, if you miss the news about these things, you would never know until the next chapter is reached...

It took me 2 years to learn that the entire monarch family in Nepal was butchered by the royal heir in 2001. I was abroad at that time, far away located from press coverages, as so often happens in my field. When I came back, it didn't get any more coverage...
