THE more elder statespersons amongst you, can recollect, no doubt, that in the December ‘73 edition of Reflections I recounted our first visit to Monnickendam. Ever since then, there have been three words on my lips - ”I shall return”. The opportunity arrived with the International Mirror Week, and by sending my wife out to work for B.R., the means.
Arrangements were made well in advance for accommodation with a Dutch family, who as it turned out, were very involved with the smooth running of the International Week. Our host, Roel Nuberg was the Beachmaster, wife Henny was dispensing coffee and sannies most days and small son Roelof was crewing for the Dutch National Champion.
