Sincerae (means "Morningstar") said...

Hans, What is the building at the bottom? A chapel or mausoleum It is so cute and in a very serene looking location.

Looks like you come from a very pretty place. Are you a little homesick for it?

Hans A.H.C. de Wit said...

No Sincerae, not homesick.
Its a teahouse.
The place Maarssen, 40.000 people, is called Little Amsterdam. You will find many huge buildings of the Golden Age built for the rich Amsterdammers, they lived there as a second house.
The fourth picture on the right is our city council..))
I will provide a link and I have more nice pictures..))
