Warffum, The Netherlands - 28th June 2008

By: Marjolein

Hello!!

In the province of Groningen, the village Warffum is every year an international dance-festival called Op Roakeldais. This is in the dialect of Groningen and means something like 'hoping for the best'.

Marjolein comes from the province Groningen. She lived in the capitalcity which is also called Groningen. Her parents still live here so she goes back to Groningen lots of weekends.

By Op Roakeldais people from all over the world come to Warffum for this festival that takes about a week. Dancegroups from for example Mali in Africa:

After this we went to the hobby market. Marjolein bought some presents for her father who's 50th birthday is today. In the Netherlands is costum to buy mustard for people who are 50. And the also say that when you are 50 'you say Abraham'. So Marjolein also bought some stuff with Abraham on it. When a women is 50 the will 'see Sara'.

In a big tent some groups from the parade also danced on stage during a performance called 'The world dances in Warffum'.

These are the Scottish:
