Beside gaming, i like strolling around. This is in Zuiderpark, City of The Hague. Also know for largest free festival Parkpop.

This is my own Central Park. I need to work on the shrubs twice a year. To freaking hot for sun bathing and BBQ's. That's why I like the Zuiderpark more.

This is an example of the 'quarter' i live in, called Laak Kwartier. This typical housing style dates back from the twenties and thirties as housing projects for people flocking to the big cities back then. This building style can be found shattered around in almost every large city (Eg Amsterdam, Utrecht, Groningen). In Rotterdam, due to bombardments in the second world war, is has relative little amount of this kind of homes.

I got to use the car to bring the no longer needed fridge to keep Heikis mixed vegetables cool (or frozen...). My primary vehicle (see earlier) is not really fit for that...:(

One from the flat lands; for your comparison also one from last vacation in The Ardennes in Belgium:)

De first one is in reclaimed land (polder) in the province of North Holland during winter time. Second one in the Ardennes near Spa in spring. Didn't took so much pictures as we were cycling most of the time (downhilling)

Homes awaiting demolition. Wasting money / improper planning: the sidewalk has just been repaved. And this is not Belgium ;)

Pictures 2 and 3 are interesting examples of eye trickery and decorative illusionism.
It requires great skill in order to make a two-dimensional artwork appear to be three-dimensional.
I really like this special method of embellishing house façades.
Thank you, waxxzer. :)
