Great holmertz 2020-03-09 4:16

Hello Viviane,
This was my favourite piece of the sculpture garden at Kröller-Müller, in fact maybe of the entire museum. I was here in 2016 and I am very happy that the restoration work hadn't started then. I was also very pleased to find a young mother dressed in pink and her small daughter walking through the "garden". That was the only photo I posted from my visit here. You used the contrast between the bright enamel and the dark forest very nicely and managed to include a couple of persons. But my persons wore nicer colours. ;-)
Best regards,

Thanks Craig,
Good to see you back. I think most people in this area are just as nice as before, but the country isn't as safe as it used to. There have been a number of Al-Qaeda attacks in Ouagadougou and the northern border areas in recent years, and many people have been killed. The whole region has been destabilized by terrorists and the war in neighbouring Mali. It's really too bad. This has become a no-go zone.
Keep well,
