What is there to see and do in Haarlem?

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

The other day someone asked me why I am blogging about India, while being in the Netherlands at the moment...don't I find Haarlem interesting enough to photograph and blog about?

The answer is: ofcourse Haarlem and Holland are beautiful as well !  I just want to continue with and finish my India series, while the memories are still relatively fresh;-).

While you can expect a few more posts about my past months in India, today I show you some pictures of things that make me happy in Haarlem:

Udaipur's animals

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

My most recent post about Udaipur featured it's colorful women. In today's post I'd like to share with you some of my animal pictures, taken when wandering through Udaipur's streets.

The number of cows, oxen, bulls, donkeys and camels is enormous. There are many dogs as well, but I only show you a tiny, pet puppy, named Tutti. And the adorned horses are used at weddings and other important ceremonies. Here they come:



Apparently, these men and their horses are for hire for weddings and other ceremonies.


10 tips for feeling at home in a hotel

A bit over three years ago, my husband got a job in Singapore and moved there from the Netherlands.

Due to circumstances I can not do the same, so since then my life looks like this: three months in Haarlem (in the Netherlands), three months in Singapore, three months in Haarlem, etcetera. When in Haarlem I live in my own house, in Singapore we rent an apartment.

The colorful women of Udaipur

Friday, November 23, 2012

Since three weeks I am back in cold, grey and rainy Holland. Nice to be in my house in Haarlem again, to enjoy my cat Guust, my friends and my family, of course. Only thing is that I hate the climate here and I miss the light and the colors of Rajasthan.

Looking at these pictures of women in Udaipur, wearing the most bright and colorful sarees, brings a bit of light and happiness on this gloomy, grey day in Haarlem;-).
