Welcome back home, Lila, of Letters from Rungholt. She visited Germany and the Netherlands. Her visit to Holland was both for pleasure and for business: she is an art historian who loves Dutch art of the Golden Age ( just like I do, only I know hardly anything about it ). About the city of Delft she writes "Isn't it a scandal that I have never been there?". I think it is an even bigger scandal that as far as I can remember I have never really been there, except for the few times that I passed through the city by train on my way from Amsterdam to Rotterdam.
