Ok, I get it, this road must have to do something with a school. Though in that street is no school... School is by the way one of the few words in English which has a SCH and a double O. Maybe an imported word?

French fries

How do you call such a bilboard in English? It's from a local lunchroom where you can amongst other buy French fries or chips.. It actually does not appeal on my appatite. Maybe becuase he the 'man' looks a bit insane...

What about a colorful painting for Christmas?

Guesthouse chapel

A picture of a building what looks like a medeival church. The plate of the department of monuments confirmed it. It jused to be a 'Guesthouse chapel'. A 15th century prayer house for the sick and travelars. During the Reformatieon in the 16th century a chapel for the Catholic worship. In the 18th century a place of gathering for the French Wallonic community. After the abolishment in 1822 it became a storehouse. Since 1960 part of the cityhall...

I keep find it amazing, 600 years of history....

Fish stand

On Saturdays there is a fish stand at the central square. Never the less I am not tempted. Though it can taste nice, I hardly eat fish..

The arrogant frog

I have a tip today; lately I have been given a splendid bottle of wine. A wonderful wine!

The etiquette and name caught my attention 'Arrogant Frog. After some research on the internet 'arrogant frog' is a nickname of the English. Arrogant because it's a characteristic of the people of France and frog because they eat frog legs.. :)

The winter sun

This morning I took my bike to bring a visit to my mom. Since I am sometimes so busy with daily life that I need to take care not to forget to bring a regular visit. The scenes were awesome. It is very cold and snowing...

A shot of the winter sun rizing in the Dutch landscape.

A cool house with the windowshutters shut.

Franka and a coffee

Aah a coffee with a speculaas biscuit, my hat against the cold (since a few days it is freezing in the Netherlands) and the new Franka, a comic for boys really..

Utrecht Amsterdam Haarlem

I like this kind of 'advertisement'; an artshop has the names of the bigger cities of Holland displayed. I feel when you are a shop in a provincial town stay local and don't put Tokio or New York there.

Or maybe they really have shops in these cities, I don't know....

A Yawner

I took a picture of a 'yawner' in Vianen. A yawner is a stone or wooden head, often depicting a Moor, on the front of a building in the Netherlands. It was used to indicate that this building is a pharmacy.

The building is now a traveling agency

Info on the history of Yawners.

Chocolate Letter

It's that time of the year that you buy goodies for the night of St Nicolas (the 5th of December). This are letters, usually you get a chocolate letter of the first letter of your name...

Tulips at the market

I have been to the market this morning. One stand, I realized is probably very Dutch. A stand only selling tulips bulbs. Selections of dark purple and pink tulip bulbs. Red and yellow, different shapes and sizes. I don't know what it is with tulips. It's one of the national symbols as a flower they are nothing special, still I like them. From time to time I buy a bunch.

Hoekse Waard

A very Dutchy site, I had to take an alternative route to my work this morning because of a serious jam on the highway I usually take. I saw this windmill and thought, 'that's a nice post for Daily'.

Alternative refrigerator

I don't eat meat or milk products, so I discovered that you actually don't need a refrigerator. I don't drink soda's either so I have lived for years without one.
But sometimes a refrigerator comes in handy. When you throw a party for example. But with a little bit creativity: I cool my drinks in the bathtub... :)

What is the question?

Almost walked allover it, somebody drew this question mark on the beach. What would have been the question? Where am I in the point of my life, where am I going, what will I do? What is the right way to go.
It is my interpretation of the question mark on the beach, but it are indeed the questions I am struggling with..
