    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.

            the walking bridges for the pontoons to Loevestein Castle are flooded, you have to drive around now for a visit
            (but this time a year they don't sail to the other side anyway)

                  Oh - beautiful images of my dear Woerkum - and oh! oh! oh! what is that at the left side of the first picture of #574? A mixture of sadness and joy to see that. But what great news in that cutting you sent me, Thijs. I do hope that Corvid 19 doesn't upset all the plans. It must surely put a stop to the planned opening next month, I think.

                    everything is closed since 6pm today till 6 april,everything thats can be visited by people, schools .restaurants, truckstops, tourists spots.
                    and many people had to work at home, which is nice, no traffic jams the last days.
                    only those which are needed so everything keep turning had to go to work, nurses,doctors grosseries, drugstores, and the most importent of all, the truckdrivers.
                    we have to deliver the goods for the shops, that the access for us is denied for there toilets, canteens of even to get in.
                    some places we had to fill in a form of where we have been the last days, drivers temperature is maesured.
                    people went completely crazy here, buying the grooseries empty, like if there is a war comming up

                    You've answered many questions that I was going to ask you by mail. Schools, restaurants etc. have not been closed as yet, but it will surely come soon. As to people stockpiling, the pictures on TV show row after row of empty shelves in the supermarkets. Even the week before last I went into our local Boots pharmacy for a routine buy of a couple of handwashes as I had used up my last two, and there were only 3 or 4 left on the shelves. Don't people normally wash their hands then, that they don't know how many to buy??? I ask you!!!
                    It's a case of "I'm alright, Jack". For non-native English speakers not familiar with this saying the following will explain it.
