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?
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...
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 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.. :)
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.
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....
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.
I am not into the Sinterklaas celebrations, but I do eat some of the goodies which you can buy. This is a marzipan piggy I endulged in. Sweet marzipan with a little bit of chocolate coating. I ate all and felt guilty....
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.
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... :)
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..
