Old & New Architecture


After a much needed, and appreciated, sleep at a Schiphol Airport hotel Lidia & I caught the Tram #17 to go to Anna & Trevor's home in Den Haag (The Hague). The three story home was remodelled by Trevor and is a beautiful home - complete with a mini recording studio in the basement; a basement itself being very unusual in the Netherlands - given that much of the country is below sea level ! When Anna returned from work we had a delicious Dutch BBQ in their back yard garden, for which their daughter Serena joined us. The following day Trevor, Lidia & I biked out to the Dunes area on the coast, and then to the Scheveningen Boardwalk. Thanks much to Anna & Trevor for their gracious hospitality and friendship.

Lidia & I will spend a few more days in Den Haag doing self-guided architectural walks, a day down to Delft, and just enjoying the relaxed, beautiful city.

Tomorrow is Delft, so

Ciao for now

ps - May do a few entries in a short period as I have access to a computer and would like to bring y'all (bit 'o Texas speak) more up to date.
