Between all the ceiling-focussed hours I decided I should go and do a bit of enjoying the environment! So after some obligatory ceiling work I put on some sturdy boots and set off. I wanted to go somewhere I would have a view on the quarry! And I did. It was very nice! I had lunch, staring at the waste tips and little cabins and whatnot. I didn't go very far; I was home 2.5 hours later, but it had been good. A nice dose of landscape magic to recharge, so then I could go back to the grind of house work!
This blog started as a tool to keep my Dutch friends informed on my whereabouts when I moved abroad. It quickly also became an external memory for my own use. It largely failed as a stage for discussions on whatever is worth discussing. And it has become a way of sharing my scientific knowledge with a lay audience. And who knows, it could become even more! And whatever it is you are looking for among all this: welcome.
