The one with the Afrika Museum

Two weeks ago I visited the Afrika Museum with my mom. Although it's only a 10 minute car ride away, the last time I visited the museum, was over 20 years ago. It has a unique collection of both traditional and contemporary art from Africa. The museum consists of two parts, indoor and outdoor. Indoors were two temporary exhibitions, one with photographs from the Masaai in Kenia, and the other one was titled Mythical Animals. Outside, visitors can experience rebuilt African architecture, from several countries.

View from the museum to the main road. It was such a beautiful, warm and sunny day!

Not a part of the museum, but this could be seen from the outside part of the museum. We have absolutely no idea what it was, or how to get closer to it. I wanted to ask, but I forgot....

And some sort of selfie

The one with August

We are already a week into September, but I wanted to share some of the pictures that I have taken last month. Maybe you've already seen (some) of them on Instagram. August was a good month, although I wished there was a bit more sun! Supposedly a small heatwave is on its way, and I am looking forward to spending some time on the balcony, with a cold drink and a good book. Currently I am reading the Exiles Return by Elisabeth de Waal (the grandmother of Edmund de Waal, who wrote the Hare with amber eyes).

I see this shop window each morning when I leave my home to get to work. The bright colours make me start the day with a smile

As a kid I loved these tiny, colourful good luck dolls. The door was spotted on a walk from the bus station back home. 

I love vintage curtains, and vintage cars. Wouldn't that little white guy be lovely to have for shop deliveries! I try doing most of them by bike, but when it's raining I take the car.

As you might know, cheese is one of my favourite foods. There aren't many cheeses I don't like! And watching bees doing their thing is something I can do for a long time. It's so soothing to watch them doing work.

I've never noticed this little tower on a school nearby. And how cute are these dudes?
