CBW: Mural

190308BnW

This beautiful mural is made by Robin Nas, aka. Zenk One, as part of the Blind Walls Gallery in Breda, the Netherlands.

Brave as a lion is a tribute to Godevaert Montens, mayor of Breda from 1580-1581 and 1596-1602. He is known for his supposed heroic actions in 1581. During the fury of Houtepen he led a group of Breda citizen soldiers into battle against the Spanish troops. Unfortunately Breda was no match for the Spanish soldiers. The troops plundered, killed, raped and looted the city and its citizens. Volunteers were needed to clean up the remains of 584 dead civilians.

Celebration

   Six Word Saturday:

Street golf. Barbecue boat. Girls Out.

Our friend Monnik celebrated her 40th birthday today, by inviting seven friends for an afternoon of street golf and a very special barbecue on water. Though we only reached four golf ‘holes’ – two trees and two concrete blocks – and almost knocked a woman off her bike, we had big fun. The boat had a lazy engine, which got us stuck under a bridge for a while, and also a lazy barbecue (the round device in the middle of the orange ‘boat’), but in the end the boat and wine floated and the food got hot so we could finally dig in. The nice skipper kept his thoughts to himself hehehe.

Thanks Monnik, for sharing this special day with us.

Have a fine weekend!
