Int'l Women's Day

Dear Gentlemen!

Flowers and the Netherlands are inextricably linked Flowers are the things that add color to the typically Dutch landscape Holland is known as the largest flower shop in the world, and for good reason The Dutch take their flowers seriously, and not just the tulipsThe flower industry is the major industry of Holland, and although tulips are still the focus of most of the industry, the crocus, hyacinth, and other nice flowers extend the season from early spring throughout the summer

Russian and Dutch Divisions invite everyone to join our Airbridge between Amsterdam (Schiphol) and Moscow (Vnukovo) on the 8th of March, dedicated to Internetional Women`s Day We want everybody to bring to their beloved women bouquet of flowers, say words of love or something really pleasant and to hug them to show all the feelings, that we have towards them Because we can not imagine our lives without women))
