thuis voor tekst

nieuwjaarsdraak vietnamNa bijna zes weken Vietnam zijn we weer thuis. Wat een prachtig, indrukwekkend, lawaaierig en fantastisch land! Nu weer aan de slag. Volgende week plannetjes maken voor komende zomer tijdens werkoverleggen voor Film by the Sea en de Badkoerier en afronding van het project Vlissingen in quotes.
