Lamere festival in Almere, Holland

The Lamere festival in Almere, Holland is the first summer festival that I’d been to in Europe.

I was probably the only non-resident of Almere at the Lamere festival in 2011.

Almere comes across as a close-knit community of people who know of each other, similar to some of the other smaller towns/villages in the Netherlands.

It was the perfect afternoon. The sweet fragrance of chicken and fried rice circled the air as kids jumped up in joy in an attempt to touch the glorious Holland sky. The summer had arrived! The toddlers were there, kids, teenagers, parents, grandparents, and great grandparents!

The sense of community was the strongest that I’ve experienced in the western world.
