Het meerdaagse Nyama Wereldculturen Festival eindigde zondag in het Poptapark, waar een fijne mix van buurtbewoners en mensen uit de stad en het prachtige weer voor een gezellige festivalsfeer zorgden.

A splendid evening at Scheveningen Beach leaves the best memories of having been there with friends. It was a cold and rainy Sunday and the Dutch weather was typically uncertain about itself, occasionally offering up glints of sunlight through the dark mist. ‘Dutchified’ as we are now, we had already planned to go there despite the annoying weather. I had seen this beach calm and crowded on a sunny afternoon, but this time it was different. There were high tides, strong winds and swiftly moving dark clouds, rendering the place virtually deserted. This snap was taken at the moment when the sunrays somehow managed to peek through the dense, dark blanket of thick moving clouds, creating an aura in the middle of the sea. Like poetry it was, bringing William Wordsworth’s beautiful lines to my mind:
‘Earth has not anything to show more fair:
Dull would he be of soul who could pass by
A sight so touching in its majesty.’
