As you may know I often wander about and astray through landscapes I have never been before or in this particular case I know all too well. Batenburg is not far away from Nijmegen, where I was born and raised and upon my word it is a quite pittoresque village along the river Maas.
Being a deep sea fish a coelacanth hardly ever come face to face with a white shark way up high but sometimes it does. If so, what would you expect to happen.

Estate ‘Voorlinden’ at Wassenaar, Zuid-Holland, Netherlands has become my favourite park because it holds everything dear to me: a classic mansion from the 1920s, a museum of modern art with an interesting collection and last but not least a park surrounding the main buildings of equisite quality.
