Week 256

Last week I trav­eled to Utrecht to do some main­te­nance work on an old project. I took the oppor­tu­ni­ty to work at our Utrecht office and check out the Vecht­club XL’s new cafe De Klub. I am severe­ly impressed how the venue is shap­ing up to become Utrecht’s num­ber one des­ti­na­tion. Anoth­er old project that […]

Come over and play at Tweetakt

From my win­dow I can see guys build­ing the Twee­t­akt pavil­ion on the Neude square. They’ve start­ed today. Next week, the fes­ti­val starts.

Twee­t­akt is a fes­ti­val for per­form­ing […]
