Cool air, Warm sun

When the sun comes out, it doesn't matter if there's a chill in the air ... there's nothing like sitting at an outside cafe, soaking up some rays and watching the world go by. Or if it's not the world, at least the town of Haarlem.

I'm just coming back from a couple of days in Paris, and I'm busy catching up with the posts I missed!

Did you know I lived 5 years in Haarlem before moving to the Hague last year? It is a very nice city to live, away from the busy Amsterdam, especially when you have young kids! This was our favorite hobby on week end days, especially on the Botermarkt, a small place full of cafes in the sun. Is it where you took this pic?

That fellow up the back looks like he's up to no good!

Apologies in advance if it's your brother in law or something. ;)

Lezard, I do remember you saying that you lived in Haarlem. It's one of our favorite towns. We hadn't yet made it to the Frans Hals museum so we spent some time there a couple of weekends ago.

This particular photo was taken just opposite the grote kerk. But any sunny space throughout the town seemed to be occupied this day!

From the picture I remembered way back when were in Ohio with my family, the air was so cool which we doesn't require to use our split system air conditioning because the air will just pass through open windows and door. So fresh like no other. The weather is so nice there and you can really relax totally.

Failure rates for computers and other key hardware will be influenced by an excess of humidity, as moisture in the air can cause electricity to arc between different circuits. What’s more, air conditioning will protect the building itself damp and other moisture-related problems.
