More American than Dutch

TUESDAY, July 6 – The Dutch soccer team is through to the semi-finals. I just bought orange T shirts for all three of us. I haven’t been able to muster much interest in World Cup soccer lately, but this seemed like the right moment to foster a bit of Dutch identity in the next generation. They’re open to the idea and can scarcely believe their eyes when they see the crowds on Museum Square. They feel more American than Dutch, but this is really impressive and that gratifies my paternal pride.
