Some Things Never Change

Holland, 16th century
Ice Landscape
painting by Hendrick Avercamp (1585 -1634)
Holland, 19th century
A Winter Landscape With Figures On A Frozen Waterway
painting by Jan Jacob Coenraad Spohler (1837-1923) (source.)
Holland, 21st century
A Frozen River Landscape
picture by AP photographer (04-04-09)

There aren't many things I miss about Holland. The drop maybe, but I have a reasonably steady supply line set up. But this (see up) may be the other thing.

ik snap het helemaal. Het is ook echt een prima gevoel te weten dat het hier in Eindhoven straks -20 C is en dat het binnen gewoon lekker warm is. Ben ineens blij dat ik effe in Nederland zit.
Reageer je ook even op mijn emailtje?
