Friends to hang out with. And so this is an ode to my friends. The friends of the HRC (Hadile, shall I mention you by name, even though you so harshly abandoned us? :), the friends at work, my Dutch friends, my local friends, my friends in Holland, My blog friends, my FB friends ("ahum") my SIL, who, although family, should count as a friend. Because a life without friends is empty. And so, an ode to friends.
