Crazy Night @ the ‘Feria Dushi Tera’

22 03 2011


The fair ‘Feria Dushi Tera’ last thursday 17 March was at the occasion of 35 years Himno y Bandera (National Anthem and the Flag) and 25 years Status Aparte of Aruba. Aruba is the first island in the constellation of the Netherlands Antilles to have gained in 1986 it’s own semi-independent status in the Dutch Kingdom. Each year this fact is being celebrated on 18 March.

The fair was buzzing with people from all over the island. It was a great night with all kinds of goods in the colors of the beautiful flag of Aruba, delightful music, nationalistic speeches, typical dishes and the festivity was closed by wonderful fireworks.  Bookish Publishers had it’s own stand nr. 29 and people could meet&greet the writer Quito Nicolaas. So we got family and friends coming by, but also people interested in literature and reading. The only party pooper was the rain that spoiled part of the evening. Here is a photo impression of the night.
