Yesterday I went to London for the third time in just a few weeks for the IAS project I am working on. The reason we went yesterday was kind of remarkable: the lady we had to meet, who was frequently in Amsterdam, is pregnant and does not fly anymore during her pregnancy. So, we had […]

The BIG news

Brethern?

I just recently found out that I should be careful how to describe the ‘denomination’ of our former church in Amsterdam.
