    You have presented a lovely kaleidoscope of the Woudrichem festival, Thijs, thank you very, very much. There is so much detail, making it come alive. And there are other pics., too. I love those at #537, particularly the second one - just a perfect scene with the white flowers along the bank echoing the clouds, then the old city hall, views of and from the mill - and that was interesting to see the photo of the original one. Even more, it was fascinating to see the older picures of Woudrichem before the historic port was made and also during the floods. And the pics. of your Janihudi - great!
    Thanks again!
    you're welcome

    best regards Thijs

      Just had a quick look. Yes, that's the one. So it was your home town fair - ir was fun.

    Thanks for sharing all these wonderful images.... such a wonderful place. So different from Norway and I really hope some day to visit Woudrichem.

    You can see there is so much history in the place, and the connection to the water makes it even better for me.
    With best regards from Jan-Olav Storli
