Pineapple from Benin

Monique brought this pineapple from Benin, a sweet reminder of our time in Accra. This species is slightly slimmer in size and grayer in color than pineapples in Dutch shops. They taste incredibly delicious. In Ghana, they talked about "sugar bread".

Daffodils

Last week Monique bought a bunch of flowers to celebrate my birthday. They remain fresh for more than a week. There are as many daffodils as the number of years I count.

Aantjes

During the Second World War, when he was an adolescent, the former Dutch Christian Democrat politician Wim Aantjes joined the Germaanse SS and refused to work for the Waffen SS later on. After more than thirty years an authoritative professor misjudged his case and Mr. Aantjes stepped down as party leader in Parliament. Recently during an interview on television he said he believes that he must take responsibility of his deeds after his death in front of the divine authority, His behavior will be judged. He was apparently afraid for this defining moment.
