Frysk life: 3
A more ordinary day today - food shopping: However the walk back was along a canal and the boats and the houses were in such a contrast to Ireland. I was particularly struck today by the postboxes - set into the house walls in stone, rather than an integral part of the door. Leeuwarden/Ljouwert is European City of Culture in 2018 and it is going to be such a picturesque place to have it.
I have started on the 'Irish' part of a short story and we'll see where it will go. I would like to incorporate some Frysk language into it as I will be locating it in the two countries (in three, actually). So, lots of reading history and lots of photographs to remind me of Ljouwert/Leeuwarden in the future.
