Bezoek aan Dordrecht

 Impressions of Dordrecht, one of the oldest cities in the Netherlands.
Indrukken van Dordrecht, een van de oudste steden van Nederland.


 Jungendstil


 Some of the housefronts have beautiful details.
Sommige gevels hebben prachtige details.


Right: the gardens of Villa Augustus (see below)

At the left: Water tower, rebuilt as hotel. Right: my lunch, decorated with flower petals. 
Links: De Watertoren, verbouwd als hotel. Rechts: mijn lunch versierd met bloemblaadjes.


 Texts we came across.
Gedichten, die we tegenkwamen. 



In the heart of a seedling
deep under the ground
Rests a tiny plant
Sleeping till tomorrow comes
Wake up - said the sun
And open to the light.
Wake up - said the rain
And show your side.
The tiny plant heard this
And grew up tall to see
How beautiful the world ... might be

Mooie oude stad. Zo zag Rotterdam er voor de oorlog ook uit (aldus mijn vader, een rasechte Rotterdammer). Dordrecht riep dubbele herinneringen op.
