Martin's James Bond 50th Birthday, Asperen, Gelderland, Netherlands - 9th June 2018

It's time for Martin's 50th birthday, held at Het Dorpshuis on Van Langerakstraat in Asperen. It's James Bond themed, with Roulette, Blackjack, Poker tables and million-dollar bills, as well as a great acoustic three-piece band (along the lines of a covers-based Fairground Attraction, but with double bass instead of guitarron), DJs and a supply of Dutch speciality - Bitterballen. There was even a chance to learn some more useful "bar Dutch" from the bar staff, like "dry white wine" and "fizzy water". Godverdomme!
