Good morning! Morocco opens again to travelers from abroad. And the first keg of herring is handed over to the GGD, as an appreciation for the vaccination staff.
First the weather: In the morning, the sun quickly breaks through the north, while cloud fields are less successful elsewhere in the country. But over the course of the day, the sun gets more chances everywhere. It stays dry and in low winds it gets up to 20 degrees in the far north to 27 degrees locally in the south of Limburg.

What did you miss?
Dutch strawberries are in demand. Since 2010, production in our country has almost doubled, to a record of 78 million kilos last year. This increase is mainly due to the growing number of strawberries in greenhouses and plastic tunnels.
What is also striking: exports of the Dutch summer wrenches – as the strawberry is also called – has barely risen in recent years. “That means we eat those extra strawberries ourselves,” says Wilco van den Berg, market specialist at the groentenFruit Huis industry organization. “Over the past three years alone, consumption in the Netherlands has risen by a third to 45 million kilos.”
