    Hé, dat 4-daagsekruisje was me totnogtoe niet opgevallen. Dat verdient wel een 5-punt rating!

    Alphons, I was in Nijmegen in January for the weekend & I really love it. I did not have a chance to walk on De Ooypolder though perhaps I have to come back & do that again. Your page is so informative with some great tips for a beautifu city:-)

    There seem to be many scenic areas around Nijmegen--the historic buildings and towns along the water...thanks for sharing them!

    It must be nice to have a windmill just 200 meters from your home. Or does it make lots of noise when the wind blows? Looks great, in any case. "Gelderland" sounds like "money land" in German, but maybe it means something different?

    Thank you Alphons for visiting my Buffalo page. We both have interesting hometowns tho yours is much older. Before 1800 there were only Native Americans here. The walk seems great but 50km a little too much for me...maybe I could bring flowers too...Tom
