back home

Bringing Bolivian goodies, lots of stories and even more photo's, Emma's back. Tanned, wiser and matured.

Yesterday was the opening of the Avedon photo exhibition in FOAM Amsterdam. A good opportunity to see the impressive work of this important 20st century photographer before it will be shipped to the VS at the end of May.

Beyond the Taj Mahal

"Incredible India" is the slogan in the TV commercial for tourist India. Incredible, India is for sure. In the film "Slumdog Millionaire" we are witness of the life and andventures of Jamal Malik from the slums of Mumbai. And although the people in the film are characters, and the slums they live in is a filmset you can't help beeïng overwhelmed by the incredible poorness and inhumane struggle of daily life. Lucky for the benign Jamal there is a possible escape. A wonderful story and a peak behind the tourist India.

Mimosa belongs to February. Every year at the end of January I'm starting to look out for it. This year it is available in different types. With a little bunch of fuchia-coloured anemones and the yellow mimosa, combined with the green base of last week's saturday flowers, I made this new bouquet.

Emma's last Peruvian stop before she flies home to cold and windy Amsterdam.

het vrije schaap

The television highlight of my week is the series "Camping het vrije schaap".
It is a lighthearted comedy in a typically Dutch setting in the fifties. A strong cast, oldtime quality songs and a brilliant director. Probably not at all appealing to "the not Dutch" but it makes my fridays.
