Den Haag, December 2002. The little court where I live.
The park of Rijswijk, March 2003It was a beautiful, hazy, sunny morning on my way to work, when I saw this.
Spring is definitely here... Park near Rijswijk, on my way to work at 9am (April 2003)
Livingroom, from the door where you enter. Table is now in the window. I'll prolly get more chairs, at least 2 more.
This is where the table used to be
View from the window. Don't mind the mess on the table. I had to pick up everything...
CD towers will prolly go along side the TV "stand", or not. Dunno
View from the kitchen... looks cozy. Now proper lights, redistribute the paintings and posters and get some big pillows for on the floor when I watch DVDs or lounge to some music. :)
Petra trying to quickly take off the non-flattering sweater.. fat chance! :)
Mirella and Petra as my first guests to test, try and enjoy my new chairs and dining table
The cook during his first (of many) dinner parties. I cooked a Thai dish with curry, coconut milk, chicken, brocolli, cashew nuts and mushrooms. A Chardonnay completed the dinner...
At beach club Friends, on the Zuiderstrand, just North of Kijkduin. My friends Juli, Harrald and Saskia enjoying a late lunch.
Later, Yves, Madou and Tijen from EPO joined us (after I sent them to the wrong beach first, sorry!)

Aaaaah, espresso! Makes my day! :)
Later that evening, in beach club "de Karavaan" on the Noorderstrand in Scheveningen, where Saskia, Juli, Harrald and I went for a nice evening around a bonfire
No bonfire, but a fireplace to keep us warm
Saskia and "Krekel" chillin' to the max
The owner of de Karavaan came over and chatted with us...
Really beautiful, old house in a small trendy, yuppie shopping corner called "Haagsche Bluf"

June 4th, early afternoon... Big thunderstorm hits while at work. Visibility drops to near zero... but...

July 15th... summer's definitely here. And with this scene (Petra took the shot) you'd believe you're in the tropics or something

Late dinner in beach club Soomers
No it's not night... it's 21h30 and thunder coulds are dropping a bit of rain here, some more over there... :)
