24 hours from the veranda of huize Margot is: rising as the fog lifts from the valley and the green hills emerge. Down by the stream you will see deer drinking and across the valley the farmer lets his cows out to pasture. and here you can sometimes still see the grass being cut with a scythe. On every hilltop you can see a quaint little white church. The bells are striking, noon. The sun circles the house and makes it snugly warm. The rest of your party takes their seats at the long solid wood table where lunch turns into barbecue or dinner. You realize you haven’t heard a car all day. Darkness falls as the crickets chirp and the stars emerge. No light pollution here, you never saw it so dark.
