Let's continue the walk.

Goodmorning everybody!

I was lucky yesterday, no rain on my head! So I filled up the fridge and did just a few small things around the house, will have to do more today. Then I started already preparing for dinner. We had still a big left over from the other, bone ham out of the oven, yummie. So what to eat with that? I made a potatoe salad again. Cut the potatoes in really small squares( or almost squares LOL) cut up in sqaures also an apple, half a cucumber, two small onions. Bit of mayonnaise, bit of oil, few drops of balsamico vinigar, pepper and salt and I must say, this one tasted real good! And I have it easy today too, cause I have enough of it left for dinner. So I will make a hamburger to it, and we have a good meal again.
I will take you along now with our Sunday walk, we ended at the point we arrived at the culture fair. Put on your walking shoes, hahahaha, and take a look around with me.
First picture isn't so very interesting, but I put it anyway, you can get an idea how many people were around.
I tried to take a photo from a group that gave small performances about fairy tales, but couldn't get a clear shot because of the crowd.
A bit further we saw a little group of children, who played the violin. It was adorable to see, I think most of them were between 5 and 9 years old. They played a Spanish dance.
And I believe next picture is my favourite!
Isn't she a cutie????

And walking around we had great fun looking at all the artists in there outfits and here a few shots
There also was a lot of music, so all together, with the great weather, it was a joyous bunch of people.
We took some time looking around, and ten moved on again heading for home. But we were still far away. We passed again the government buildings( where they still are talkig about a coalition for a new government, a;ready they are busy with that for 3 months! and we still don;t know how long it may take more! A few days ago they cancelled the discussions, bacuse one of the parties hadn't enough confidence in it anymore. Of another partie a few people had their doubts if they were doing the right thing, got out of their party and now suddenly all three want to go on with discussion and formation of a new cabinet! I don;t think that is a wise thing, it will probably never stick together for 4 years. I could write more about it, but we are busy with our walk and not politics, so let's move on okay?)

Opposite to them is standing the old prison, I talked about on another walk. Now you will have a better look at it, this is really an old building, it was used as prison from 1420 till in the 1800's !
A while further we sawan old coach, and you can make a little tour in it through the centre.
And I took two shots of the horses, I feel so sorry for those animals, having to stand there for hours, and may be having a walk two or three times, and do you notice? The coachman is sitting a bit in the shade, but the poor animals are standing most of the time in the sun.
We had to move on, and the last picture isn;t a very great one, but I still will show you, because in The Hague we also have a little Chinatown! It's in this street and some streets around, lots of Chinese shops and restaurants, but the funniest thing was that we saw a little kind of fish and chips shop, were there were Chinese people selling Dutch french fried potatoes, LOL!
We're at the end of the picture session, we still walked along direction home, and oh boy, was I happy to be back then! I really had a bit of sore legs. Not so strange after the walk we had the day before too! We could have taken the tram back, but brave as we were we walked home all the way( and I was sorry about that a bit!!)
Now I am curious were we will be the next time we go out. Today it isn't the weather for it. It's raining all the time, but they say it will be better on Friday again, with more sunshine, perhaps even no rain at all. Could be a good day, but I am not planning anything, because they always turn out different, my plans ROFL!

Time for a little freebie. It is a small one, I have just two quickpages for you. But perhaps they come in handy for something.
Have a fantastic day!

Wow, Kyra, your photos are wonderful! I find it amazing that the prison building is almost 600 years old and still standing and looking pretty good. The photo of that gorgeous pond is just fabulous. I will miss these walks when the weather is bad, but there is always the new Spring to look forward to. Thank you for brightening my day. Hugs, Edna B.
