The Christmas decorations are almost all up, and the holiday chocolates are on display for Sinterklaas’ visit in a few weeks. Whie the twon square is still empty, waiting for the Market to arrive, the Bijenkorf already has their holiday windows up.

Taking photos of familiar touchstones feels like econnecting with the city and the people, colourful bomen en paraplu's against grey kasseien en winkelpuien.
