A week or two before I had visited the nearby hillfort. But it had been dark by the time I got there! But on a Saturday, after almost a day of chores, I decided to revisit it (before diner, this time) to get soem fresh air and see the thing better. And I did! It was lovely. Architecturally it's lost its shine; not much more than a wall keeping sheep in is left, but it's still circling this modest hilltop. A nice little walk!

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.
