Jump in the water? No boy!

Ralph is standing here next to the statue of Nelson Mandela in The Hague. He looks so small beside
this great man. This statue was made by the Dutch sculptor Arie Schippers and this monument is  3,5 meter tall. Wow!
  • Question: How tall is my 12 year old son?  Link
Kleine en grote man
Wat een klein mannetjes lijkt mijn zoon zo. Hij staat naast het standbeeld van Nelson Mandela in den Haag. Het monument is gemaakt door de Nederlander Arie Schipper. Dit monument is 3,5 meter hoog. 
Mandela Monument: 'Long Walk to Freedom'

This statue is near Omniversum. With a screen that spans a massive 36 metres wide x 18 metres high Omniversum is the biggest theatre in The Netherlands. So, Ralph enjoyed viewing three movies there. He chose Oniversum as holiday getaway. Yes! The Netherlands is one of Europe's most kid-friendly countries.

Dit monument staat vlakbij het Omniversum. Omniversum is een grootbeeldfilmtheater. De films worden door een geavanceerde techniek op een enorm projectiescherm geprojecteerd. Ralph heeft het gekozen als vakantie uitje en keek er drie mooie wildlife films:

This was a father and son outing. I had to stay home. Luckely I got nice pictures over the Phone. Photos of tasty ice creams, donuts with powdered sugar, photos of driving in the streets of The Hague. Ralph makes fun with sending me this photo: Will I jump into the water, mama?

Bommetje, mama?
Dit was een vader en zoon uitje. Ik moest thuis blijven. Gelukkig kreeg ik mooie foto's toegezonden. Foto's van lekkere ijsjes, van het rijden door de straten van Den Haag. Ralph had veel plezier met de foto: Bommetje mama?

Cappucino for dad, donut for Ralph
O, no!!!
