The town I grew up in (called Masterton) in New Zealand, is a pretty similar size to Dalfsen so there is something familiar about it. This photo is like a snapshot of the main street of Dalfsen
This is the main shopping street in Dalfsen. The kids are looking in, the teens are looking out, the adults are standing by and the families are walking back home. Of course I was pretty much oblivious to all this. I got more of an up-close and personal view of the place, a lot of shoes and large faces in windows.
This is Monique and Alex, they are exchange students. They have a plan to take the world by storm, making their way by art. They have some songs up their sleeves already and dotted map around the globe to follow, now all they gotta do is get their way out of Dalfsen.
And the best story of the day goes to this woman (sorry I forgot her name) who was in Zwolle for the evening to look for a man. Yes she brought her friend (from a nearby town) into Zwolle to find a man for her, she said she was going to look for the best bar and throw her in it. I wish her well in her mission.
Is everyone in Zwolle from a boy/girl band? Potentially yes, according to (my) statistics there is a higher boy/girl band hopefulls here than in any other part of the region, possibly the entire world.
She wanted to come in but there really wasn't room. If you come to Auckland some time we can play drums together in the comfort of my lounge.
And finally this is the square as seen from an upright position with performers from France doing a fantastic improvised performance with the people of Zwolle.
This is the local bakery with a plastic cake in the window (after hours of course), it's the best plastic cake I've seen and if I could have I would have tried to take a bite regardless. Like at primary school when you know you shouldn't take a bite out of your eraser but you just can't stop yourself.
I like this one a lot, looks like I might be having a party in there. Maybe I was in fact, that would explain all the confetti and cake crumbs all over my shirt, orange juice in my shoes and birthday candles all through my hair.
