Red kites are medium-large birds of prey that can be recognised quite easily by their long forked tail which is twisting as they change direction.
More about the Red Kite Centre in mid-Wales can be found HERE.

The first photo shows rag-and-bone man Euzie, who walked many miles each day to earn his living. He wore his oversized coat like a home and never suffered from the winter-cold. Jopie said that one day of Euzie's life impressed him more than the whole life of Joseph Luns (Dutch Mininster of Foreign Affairs from 1952-1971 and Secretary General of NATO from 1971-1984).
The second photo shows Jopie's close friend Sjoerd, with a face expressing both sorrow and joy.

I am or was not a fan of C+B, but I really enjoyed seeing the exhibition. Both photos give a small impression.

And while tourists came and went, 2 men were busy working on the structure. Can you see one of them standing there? What a job they have!

The harpsichord produces sound by plucking a string when a key is pressed. It was widely used in Renaissance and Baroque music. During the late 18th century, it gradually dissappeared from the musical scene with the rise of the piano.

We visited Kasteel Het Nijenhuis (The Nijenhuis Castle) today, one of the best preserved manor houses in the province of Overijssel. It is situated between the villages of Heino and Wijhe. Its history began in the late Middle Ages, the first record dating from 1382. The castle was occupied by various noble families, though after the estate had been sold by the Van Pallandt family in 1934, it fell into disrepair. On initiative by collector Dirk Hannema the castle was restored and converted into an architect-designed museum. Nowadays it is one of the locations of Museum De Fundatie. Besides the castle itself the statue garden is impressive, more photos will follow.
The castle seen from another angle. Isn't the tree enormous!?
