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..
