ABOUT THIS TOOV

A unique thing happened when in february 1996 the canals of Amsterdam were frozen.
Since we lived on the Brouwersgracht ('brewerycanal') we could get on the ice in front of our home, and off course we did so!
Me not being a naturaltalent as Lex, I didn't skate very smooth as you can see.
We skated between the boathouses on the old canals. Under the bridges the ice was too thin so we had to 'kluun' (walk over the street on our skates).
The Herengracht was a beautifull scenery; the sunlight, blue sky, old canalhouses and boats and then the people skating...like a painting from centuries ago.
Everybody on the ice was delighted and aware of the uniqueness of this Toov.
