we visited the kröller-müller museum yesterday.
two hours driving ,listening to "de bremer stadsmuzikanten").
this was a good starter, because long trips by car or museum-visits are not in our childrens top 3.
the museum has a world-renowned collection of mainly 19th and 20th century visual art.
their centrepieces include the large collection of work by Vincent van Gogh and the sculpture garden.
they have free bikes to use and visit the huge park around the museum.
despite the showers in the afternoon, our trip was a succes!
as flor (13) said: "it was nice to see these famous paintings in real life"

knit the city

In front of the royal museum of fine arts there was another great attack from knit the city.
i say 'was' because after a week several hats were already stolen, what a pity.
