The beginning, why did I start this blog?

This is a blog about amazement and wonder. I am often surprised about what happens in the Netherlands, how the public react and about the views of Dutch politicians. Aren't we just running around as headless chickens too often? Talking through our hats? Don't we, Dutch people, often find things too selfexplaining whilst they are actually not? I can really be surprised sometimes and this blog is just a place to vent my observations and to create a public archive of my personal surprise.

Perhaps it surprises you that, some 10 years after blogging evolved, I am now taking up this blog..? Well, that seems a pretty good start for me. You are surprised, I am surprised, We are surprised.
