Bitterballen, poffertjes, loempias, vleeskroketten, Leidse kaas, moorkoppen!

So that is your secret! We originate from the same biotope. I was born in Zeist, 1946. My father had his workshop and music shop at the Oude Gracht near the Smeebrug. I lived in Utrecht 1959–1973. Married a woman from Breukelen, 1971. Children born in Utrecht, one settled there after his studies in Maastricht and still lives there with his family. We basically live on the corners of the triangle Utrecht-Amsterdam-Groningen.

Have you recently been there? You won’t recognize Utrecht, although the old centre between the singels has kept its charm.

Two examples of the changes, the new Central Station and the new Music Hall Vredenburg

But hardly changed:

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
