Just read it, keep in mind what our prime minister saying Xi Jinping: the leader China needs! 

So i’m here just to make money not to change the Chinese, they are responsible for their own destiny.

I suggest we (The Dutch) play hard ball when it comes down to trade, innovation IP etc. The Chinese will only cooperate as long as you have something you need, be aware of this when you ask something from them or beg for a contract! Play HARD, GAME ON!

Nice spot to hang out for 3 weeks.
Every day a plan and every day the plan changes into something else.
No sweat, time enough!



Australia: Ocean Grove

And yet another windy walk and almost wet feet…


Australia: Geelong Eastern beach

26 Jun


An even more windy walk along Geelong’s Eastern beach with great artworks; life saver bollards from Jan Mitchell.
Although these works of art might not be that useful when it comes to water-related emergencies, they certainly add bit of fun to this stretch of beach in Geelong, Victoria. The lifesaver design is just one example of the ways in which the local artist gave these bollards (made from timbers salvaged from the town’s pier) a makeover: there are 104 in total with each design representing a key character from Geelong’s past, whether it’s sailors, fishermen or members of the town band.



Australia: Point Lonsdale

Visiting somebodies hometown brings out the tourist in them. Nice windy walk to Point Lonsdale.
