Okay, here's the final one.
I suffered from a severe writersblock. I was more than happy that Henk de Ridder came up with the script of this story.
The writersblock never healed, so I decided to quit writing.
By the way, it's Jan Schets on this picture.

There were two more pictures in the book. Due to my writersblock I didn't write a story for these. But to be complete I will post the picture nevertheless.

This is "Spakenburger" or "Spakie" for friends. The only thing I know is that he came from.....guess where.....

This guy turned out to be a very succesfull writer.

Somewhere in Belarus, 1995, Dimitri and myself with the Opel Record which was specifically bought for this trip. Always good those hammers and sickles :-)

Same trip in Belarus, Dimitri with some WW2-monument.

hoi Gerard,

Als jij het was geweest had ik het wel geweten, het was een andere Gerard ergens uit zuid holland. Zal het eens aan Chris vragen.

Groet uit 3818 ( werk ;-))

Think this Gerard indeed was from Zoetermeer, can't remember his last name though.

@ Hans vdV
This is the only one I could find about the ''talking'' sea urchins at Frejus. I must have one slide with the complete word but can not find it. Can't imagine I did some self cencoring..

It took some time to form the word, because the sea urchins were contantly ''walking'' back to sea.
