Bikes and canals (Or: Canal by Denneweg)

Happy Saturday, everyone!

I took a few photos of the canal by the Dennewegbrug. “Denneweg” is the street name and “brug” is Dutch for bridge.

And in other news, there was a demonstration today at Malieveld, not far from The Hague’s Centraal station. The name is Blijf van onze kinderen af, or “Stay away from our kids”. The article is from regio15.nl in Dutch, with lots of photos. including a photo at the end of one very smart ice cream seller who knows he will do good business here.

The reason for the demonstration? The Netherlands recently decided that 12 – 17 year olds can be vaccinated with the Pfizer vaccine if they wanted. 16 and 17 year olds can independently choose for the vaccine, while younger kids need their parents’ permission. The first shot would be given now and the second shot would follow during the first month of school. Appointments for anyone born in 2004 could be made since yesterday, with 2005, 2006 and so forth following next week.

    Imho everbody needs to be vaccinated. With no free choice and no mercy. We do everything we can to prevent this virus from making us ill. Think of cancer patients who run many extra risks because of these ‘vaccinationweigeraars’.

    • Yeah, that is a difficult one. I am for letting people choose—to avoid slippery slope situations—but I am not going to lie that I am also keeping an eye on the vaccine percentage and cheering as it go up. 🙂

        I know it’s difficult, but I think it gets even more difficult when there is freedom of choice. Maybe I’m a bit extra biased, because someone I love very much has to undergo a rather serious operation next week. Stay healthy and positive! Cheers, B.

        • It is logical to be extra biased when someone you know has a heightened risk. I understand completely. Stay healthy as well!
