Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I have met a number of bloggers from ET in the past and a few American friends from the early years at the Pond ... BooMan Tribune ...

Most amazing was a meetup with an American couple who at the last moment notified me they were African Americans if I didn't mind ... still puzzles me.

From ET Bjinse - Sven Triloqvist and ET Meetup in heart of Amsterdam a long time ago.

In all instances there had been online exchange of views over many months and these persons were not strangers to me.

Personally Marlot is a bit isolated, too close to the Auto Museum, Royal Palace and the US Embassy 😉

We have a Landgoed Oosterbeek nearby behind the former Dutch Defense bunker and Prinses Julianakazerne and the mansion of Seyss-Inquart (renamed Huize Clingendael). Nearby some nice shopping and restaurants in het Benoordenhout. Short distance from het Haagse Bos, launching site of Wernher von Braun's developed V-2 rockets targeting London.

Plenty of recent and ancient history ... fortunately there is no intense hate for the Germans anymore and there is close cooperation within NATO to punish aggressor Russia for its unprovoked attack [war narrative from Stoltenberg and Washington DC think tanks like Atlantic Council ... so much wisdom 🤥]. #stopwarnow #stopnato
