Now the electrician is (as good as) done, it's time to get rid of the remnants of the old wiring. The electrician took down the old wires but not the sockets and switches. So now I'm doing that. It's not much work, really! Not all infrastructure comes out, but as long as enough comes out for the plasterer to be able to cover everything up. Now let's hope the latter makes an appearance soon!
New and old; this one didn't quite come out
This one came out best! Thanks to crumbly plastering.
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.
