|Detail of the Museum entry|
When this entry will be posted I will probably still be in Australia. Nevertheless I am going to write something about Assen the capital of the small province of Drenthe, in the north of the Netherlands. I was there in September last year. I had never been there before. My relative and I walked a great deal. Among other things we saw the Dead Sea Scrolls in the museum.
The next day we walked all afternoon and saw the beautiful building De Nieuwe Kolk( the new pot-hole, or pool or gulf??) Anyway it is a multifunctional building , containing a huge library, a large theatre, a café, an art gallery and accommodation for a photo exhibition.
The town of Assen is also really surprising with old, but well kept buildings and very modern ones.
This video starts with the Health Centre, where my aunt had to go for physio treatment . She showed to me where I could have a cup of coffee. There were coffee and tea facilities like in a hotel room.
The streets we walked through were decorated with pink and light red coloured clothes. I asked why this was done. She didn't know, but there are always two or three more or less artistic people who want to have an opportunity to show how good they are. Anyway it was amusing.
