What is he shouting ?

Hello All,

Just back from a great weekend in Eindhoven and Rotterdam. That is our third trip in three years. and on each trip we have come across the same gentleman who seems to attract the attention of the locals. He is driving a mobility scooter, has several bags and spends his time shouting. As we don't speak Dutch, we don't have a clue what he is saying. Anyone care to enlighten me ?

Regards,

Supervanman

LOL too funny...

Too bad Amsterdam no longer has its 'village fool', the guy who used to go rollerskating through Haarlemmerstraat and surroundings dressed only in a thong (string) at about 25 km/h, overtaking all bikes. Perhaps he simply started wearing more.

And Fabiola also died...

He must be strong. When I was studying in Eindhoven between 1990 and 1994 he was already there.
