Things you wouldn’t see in the UK (probably)

Making unashamed use of free internet tonight. The difficulties in getting good internet access have  been one of the low points. Dave has written before about his battles with various ISPs…and if we want to do anything involving pictures, it just eats the data.

So, lots of pictures…I’m writing this in the harbor at Appingedam, listening to the half-hourly Carillon tunes.
