400 YEARS OF DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS HOLLAND-MAROC
The Ship of Fools and the three-mast topsail schooner “Oosterschelde”, both build in 1918, set sail to Morocco to celebrate the diplomatic relations between the two countries. Soon it became clear that the organization of this celebration was bankrupt, leaving the Fools without means in the Moroccan town Al Hoceima, nicknamed ‘Small Amsterdam’, since many of the Moroccans living in Amsterdam originate from there. In the end the city provided the Fools with crates of potatoes and tomatoes. In the end the Fools, with three sailors left, returned to Europe, not without difficulties to refrain the custom officers of boarding the ship for a fresh future.
