Cinnamon Toast and Sinterklaas

A dozen or so of us guys from the International Bible Church of Bonaire got together Saturday morning at the City Cafe for an informal farewell breakfast for Udo Luse. Udo and Bernie will be retiring from Trans World Radio and moving near their sons in California soon.

As we were contentedly munching our Mueslli, Sinterklass arrived, from Spain, on a tugboat at the pier across the street. We had a ringside seat. There were hoards of people, dignitaries, and a drum corps there to greet him.

If you'd like to learn more about Sinterklaas, scroll to the right side of this page and check out one of my first blog postings, still in the archives from November 2003.

Thank you Leila for this great picture of the man himself. More pictures of this year's event can be found in the Bonaire Insider photo gallery.
