Escher: spheres

Escher museum: Escher in het Paleis, Den Haag

Yesterday I visited the Escher in het Paleis museum in Den Haag.

The museum is located in the former winter palace of Queen Emma. This turned out to be a fantastic location for a museum like this. You still get to experience some of the royal look and feel and the Escher drawings fit perfectly into this environment.

There is a lot of Escher’s work available to see in the museum. All his famous works are there, including the impressive Metamorfose III. Click on the images in the below gallery for an impression.

If you are in the neighbourhood, I highly recommend you to visit the museum.

About Time – It’s Richard Curtis and Bill Nighy reunited

Richard Curtis and Bill Nighy are reunited again in new rom-com About Time. And how can that not be a good thing? Add to that the talented Domhnall Gleeson and I think we finally have another rom-com worth seeing. And the Independent and The Telegraph not slaughtering the film, I think we have something to look forward too.

Cycling and local produce

Local fruit stall

The great thing about cycling around is that you sometimes find places like these along your way. Here (Yes this was in Nieuwegein of all places) you could buy cherries, strawberries, red berries and even gooseberries for just a couple of euros. You had to put the money in the moneybox, which to my surprise had not been stolen yet.

In the mean time, summer has arrived, it is around 30 C here in the Netherlands. (But I understand London has the same temperatures at the moment)

Apenheul, Apeldoorn: Monkey business

In Apeldoorn you’ll find one of the best animalparks in the Netherlands. They are specialized in monkeys. The park is in a beautiful area with lots of trees and lots of their monkeys can wander around freely in the park which means you can really get close to them.

For more information about the park, please visit: Apenheul, Apeldoorn. I can highly recommend you a visit.
