Autumn evening in Scheveningen

It was a beautiful Autumn evening in Scheveningen. The sun was still shining on the pier (photo above) and on the Kurhaus (photo below). Unfortunately there stood a strong wind blowing the sand over the boulevard ........ to find it grinding between your teeth! :)

Time for Mary Poppins

Whatever the age .... Mary Poppins is cool! We enjoyed a wonderful musical in the Circus Theatre in Scheveningen. After the show we walked to our car singing merrily: supercalifragilisticexpialidasties.....

Chinese gate in The Hague

Noted this beautiful Chinese gate in The Hague and looking through really liked the impression all those red Chinese lanterns gave to the street behind the gate. Googling the internet learned me that the gate was officially opened in January 2010. It accentuates the 100 years business relationship between The Hague and China and stimulates a much more intensive working relationship for future business.

Dragon house

This "dragon building" is beautifully situated in the forest!
Had to be there for an instruction training on a new law.

Hope the dragon above the entrance is no indication of what to find inside.......It looks frightening.......... and hungry.......
..... lucky me ..... I survived!
..... and enjoyed an interesting afternoon with a good lecturer!

Colourful building

A few weeks ago I heard that the thesis I wrote, to complete my bachelor's degree at the financial university of applied sciences, was nominated for a price. The price-giving ceremony took place in this colourful building in Hilversum, housing the Sound and Vision museum.

Sidewalk cafe

Last week my studies started again, this time in Zwolle. As the weather was lovely I decided to leave early so I could have a drink at a sidewalk cafe. The weather was just perfect for that and as you can see on these photo's I wasn't the only one doing so!
