Kings Day Amsterdam
On 27 April, Amsterdam colors Orange again for the Dutch National Holiday Kingsday. It’s probably dark-orange as the weather forecast isn’t great at all. The Dutch celebrate the Kings birthday out on the streets, but this year probably more inside the bars. There are street parties on Amstel (opposite Amstel 54), at the Homomonument on Westermarkt, on Zeedijk at Cafe Queen’s Head and in Reguliersdwarsstraat (mixed street party between gay and str8 bars).

But times have changed, and while mail order husbands used to arrive by ‘closed box,’ now, thanks to the spread of the Internet, husbands arrive via the Web, with the number of matrimonial dating websites steadily expanding. But where do the best mail order husbands come from?
Not all men are willing to make the cultural leap to marry a woman from another country, the inevitable cultural distance, in fact, is not always easily overcome and much depends on where the bride comes from. Therefore, according to web users most inclined to this type of dating, the best mail-order brides are those who come from countries that have a culture closer to that of the West.
