Meanwhile, on the corner...

I live in a quiet neighbourhood, where, as per the Talking Heads, Nothing Ever Happens (at least, for the sake of argument, ok?).

Then last sunday, this happens. A boat rams the restaurant Wilhelminadok (the website seems to be down at the moment, but was online yesterday).

Bummer. Not just that the only decent terrace will now be closed for the whole summer - I won't miss the restaurant, as it was overpriced and overhyped, but it was a nice place to have an espresso - but the fact that former PM and UN high commisioner Ruud Lubbers was visiting the place as it happened. That's a bummer. Hey, our postcode region is categorized as too poor to receive mailings from the Bijenkorf! And is 99% rental housing! Do we need stinking celebs here in North? Exactly.
