In the past 2 days I've seen hundreds (feels like 1000) different artists and designers work. Everything from robots,cows blood pressed into a record of a cows heart beating, clever furniture, lots of COLOUR, little galleries in very old buildings, cool sustainability concepts and on and on...then good bands at night. So tired and content. The last photo- in all of the contemporary work, was this one museum gallery with ancient artifacts and art restoration plus a couple dinosaurs. Really topped it off.  We made it to the Netherlands! In the past few sleep deprived hours I've observed: lots of attractive people riding bikes, good beer, flowers, cute architecture, and very nice people once you make them sit with you at a bar.
