The long and the short of it

by nike, February 25, 2013

I’m going to write a whole slew of really LONG posts soon. In fact, I have drafts of about six on my hard drive, but while I have intermittent internet access it’s a bit challenging. I promise. Really. Coming soon, blog posts on: Frans Hals Museum, The Anatomy Lesson of Nicolaes Tulp, polders, gables and cornices, and more. Much more.

In the meantime, here’s two views I’ve been gazing at a lot lately, while I contemplate life, the universe, and everything.

First, the view from La Place, the cafe on the fifth floor of the V&D in Haarlem. That’s St Bavo’s – the gorgeous big church 🙂



Second, the view from the kitchen window of my temporary home in Athony Fokkerlaan, Haarlem-Noord, complete with a fresh sprinkling of one of my favourite things: snow.



  • I like knowing that there are some very long and exciting things to come ... It's wonderful being able to read about all your exciting adventures. You seem to be having a real blast :-) Neen

  • The Netherlands is an amazing place, and it's a real privilege to spend time here with family, friends and museums!
