The street where I live.

This is how our otherwise empty street looked like last night. There were lots of beautiful fireworks that blanketed the pitch dark winter night skies. Everyone was eager to meet the NEW YEAR with a BIG BANG....!



People were outside their cozy homes, holding a glass of champagne on one hand while eating oliebollen on the other... and in between, shaking hands with their neighbors. I thought it was rather gezellig.



Today, 1st January 2010.... the heavens looked promising and somewhat enigmatic, but the air was bitter cold. I went for my usual walk, and followed the same old routine. This is Twente canal, traversing our street.



HAPPY NEW YEAR to all of you!!! Here's to the next 12 months of blogging. I have really learned a lot about (and from) all of you and I hope to read more of your heartwarming and sometimes funny stories. :)
Let the blogging begin!

Nice to have a street come to life. Last night our street was quiet, which is a far contrast to what it usually is!

How nice, Droomvla! I thought I saw less fireworks here in my area this year, but still, it was also "erg gezellig" :o)
Here's to another year of blogging! (I'm toasting with my morning caffé latte hehe)

@Whitemist: Actually, I was also surprised that there were lots of people in our street. Normally, you can count them with your two hands only. LOL But this year, it was rather `crowded´. :)
