Saturday in Town

Posted by Mummy Dearest on Mar-27-2004

Very exciting : a chimney fire.

The view from my little room of my own :

    Sue, if I didn’t know better, I would swear that you live in a storybook. The architecture there makes even a chimney fire look quaint.

    Actually, Kane, I do. Our town is world famous in the Netherlands for being utterly charming.

    We get almost a million tourists every year.They stand on my stoop and pick their noses, drop their rubbish where they please.

    One summer, some American tourists overheard me talking to the children and stopped me. What is there to see here, they asked me. In my mind, I let my eyes roll to the left and then to the right.

    I live in a town from the 17th- 18th century. From the first day that I visited it ( ’82) until we actually moved here ( ’89), it was my ‘dream’place to live.

    I’ve said before that I am spoiled : I have always gotten everything that I dreamed of. Living here is one of the dreams.

    It’s official…you’re a photojournalist.
