Ik ben een Nederlander!

As of yesterday I have received Dutch citizenship. After 15 years in the Netherlands, many hassles with the Dutch Foreign Police for my stay permits, and the last adventure with City Hall (as described here) it is a fact.

They had a nice ceremony at City Hall and even a reception with a band afterwards. The Mayor did the official presentation to each of the new Dutch citizens and we even got our group picture on the front page of the local section of the Brabantse Dagblad.
