Busy weekend

Because last Thursday was Ascension Day, I also took the day off on Friday, and therefore had a nice long weekend to enjoy the beautiful weather.


Friday evening, I went to the Breda Jazz Festival. For four days, dozens of bands are playing (not only Jazz, by the way), on about ten (outdoor) stages throughout the city of Breda. With an expected 250,000 visitors, this is just one big, very pleasant and jovial party.

Saturday evening, I went to the opening of Waterlife blvd, a (temporary) beach along the river Maas in Rotterdam, which has been “constructed” there because of Waterlife Rotterdam. This is an extensive programme of events and festivities in Rotterdam, throughout the summer. The opening of Waterlife blvd was celebrated with a live concert of Bløf, and was visited by about 25,000 people.

Sunday, after watching the Formula 1 Grand Prix of Monaco, on a big screen, with beamer, in a friend’s office, we went away with the speedboat, and did some waterskiing on the river IJssel. Even at half past nine in the evening, it was still beautiful weather. And with the very smooth water, and hardly any other boats, it was perfect for waterskiing!

All in all, I had a very nice weekend! But now, let’s get back to work! *SIGH*
