Such a familiar site, coble stone roads instead of asfalt. I realized lately that this isn't the case for many people in the world. I guess it is a European thing to keep roads paved with coble stones. Accept for highways of course.
The tower of the Reformed church of Nijmegen again, it has a different top. The base is from 1530. The top from the last century. Due to a lightning struck they had to redo the top of the tower. The effect is a real interesting composition.
In the centre of Woerden a new set of houses have been build. Not that bad actually but I am irritated with the poor skills of the architect, in case of the 'decoration' above the doors. Could he not think of anything more exciting that the number 2B and 2A above the doors?
There are a few 'great' historic mantions in Woerden. Build around 1860 somewhere. All but one are visible for the public eye. This one is in the middle of centre hidden behind large trees and greenery. Only in winter you can have a glimpse of the house. A pitty because it would brighten up the centre if it was visible. The owners are very private people..
