'In Almere is alles nieuw; daar is geen replica uit de Gouden Eeuw te vinden. Het heeft zijn korte geschiedenis, die meer is dan charme, en wie er goed kijkt zal het geen moeite kosten te zien dat de nieuwe stad en het nieuwe land ook mooi zijn, weergaloos.'

'Everything in Almere is new; there are no replica's from the Golden Age to be found here. It has a short history which is more than charm , and for those who observe carefully it will not be difficult to see that the new town and new land have an unparalleled beauty of their own.'

For the first time a European baseball team has wun the World Cup.
Holanda Campione del Mondo!

I like this sport, in my younger years (the seventies) I played baseball ( for ladies: softball) in the town where I lived: Bussum. We played on a high level.

Here an action picture: me on the second base in 1974.
And she is out!
