Famous words by our friend Adrie, and she ends the sentence with “We Always Stay Home!”
Just like last Saturday… It all started a little while ago, on August 3, during the opening of the photo exhibition of our friend Jan van Breda. One hall was decked out with photos of Kotomisi. We came back on September 4 to see the expo in more detail, something we couldn’t do on opening day. We had a blast after seeing the photos again with the Surinam woman. They invited us to visit them on the groups 5 year jubilee.
This happened last Saturday. All three of us stuck out, as white as we are, but we felt like we had fallen in a warm bath, the way we were welcomed and put at ease, but also the talks, the food, drink and the music were wonderful. Below is an impression of our time at the museum, on September 4th, but also of September 26, with the headdress in copper bowls or just a plain platter, the women dancing with those said copper bowls, and NO I wasn’t dressed up as a Kotomisi but instead they asked me to dance… something I haven’t done in public for eons. Just enjoy, just as we did.

The next day “We Never Go Places, We Always Stay Home…” was at the ‘Belly of Amsterdam’ or the Central Food Market, just to see what kind of different foods are sold around the city. Okay, we tasted some of it too. 😉
