Visit to the Embajada Real de los Paises Bajos on 16 April 2007

Octavio Martinez, the chauffeur of the then ambassador Frits Regtdoorzee Greup, still recognized me over the telephone! He came immediately to the Embajada to fetch us. The present-day ambassador, Frans van Haren, was not interested to hear some history about his house “Klein Soestdijk”, where we stayed 32 and 29 years ago (perhaps because the house was now surrounded by a bullet-free wall and could not be seen from the street anymore...). Octavio took us to his house in the north of Bogotá (BoliviaX), filled with dutch souvenirs and served us colombian drinks and fruits. What a warm reception!
