GALE IN AMSTERDAM  (21 march 2004)

During the last few days we had a powerful gale blowing here in Amsterdam.

There's something heroic about a windstorm. Very few people venture out into the streets. Those who do cherish the illusion of being amongst the bravest.

There are also pitiful things in the city during the storm: people trying to protect themselves with umbrellas - which are blown to pieces.

The sad remnants are to be found all over the city.


But however heroic storms may be, we are still looking forward to sunnier weather.
