  • Gavial in a Prague cafe....

    After a visit to the Prague zoo, of course Maxim bought a new crocodilian. A gavial this time. #croc


  • Good experience with tri-lingual education

    My native language is Dutch. My wife’s is French. We both speak each other’s language fluently. But we originally met each other in Germany, and have always been speaking English together.

  • We've got cable TV!

    With an antenna on the roof, and two-and-a-half channel reception in house, we had decided that it couldn't harm to ask the cable company to get a connection. The rules said that if it would cost more than 100 Euro's, they would first tell us how much it would be. But then: suddenly there they were in our garden. I guess the communication boom on the markets has made this possible: at the time this happened the cable companies were doing ~5000 US$ per connection....

  • What Happened to this pan?

    I never imagined this could happen to the bottom of a pan. #home #oops
