DUTCHMOOT 1667 PHOTOS

On the first of the Changing Winds 1667 a.S., four Compendiumists gather from around the Low Lands to have a minimoot in the Netherlands, a Dutchmoot! From Belgium arrive Marvin Cerambit and Irid al'Menie, while Miraran Tehuriden arrives from the north to rendezvous in the Dutch town of Breda, where Gean Firefeet hosts the day. The Santharians visited local historical sites, like the Castle of Breda and the Cathedral of the city. At the less 'formal' part of the visit, the Santharians enjoyed the local 'Bourgondian' hospitality, as the Dutch refer to the warm hearth of the Brabant (province of the Netherlands where Breda is part of). As the weather was very nice an hour or so on a terrace was enjoyed, after which a visit to an Italian restaurant ensued, and finally a stay at a bar followed.

Pic 15. Enough culture for today! It's time for relaxation and talk about life and Santharia in the sun.


Pic 16. There is no Gean... At least not for mean people with cameras who try to make a good photo all few seconds!


Pic 17. Miraran's happy expression at the approaching waitress can be summarized with two words: Hmm, beer!


Pic 18. Another nice group photo, many thanks, miss waitress! But... who are those people in the background...?


Pic 19. Intermezzo in the park! But the boys don't want to play and make sand castles with the other kids.


Pic 20. In the evening we take a bite and after that visit a bar for a final round. Marvin watches out for pretty girls..
