Lunch in the Chinese quarter

We met up with a friend on Monday at De Waag op de Nieuwmarkt and ate round the corner at the Nam Kee on the Zeedijk.

We discussed Chendra’s video clips on YouTube. My favourite is Lamento de Pollux (Chendra is himself dancing in that one) with very effective music by Santiago Lanchares. It’s a work-in-progress, but already excellent. I told Chendra that the clip reminded me of Un Chien Andalou. But when we looked at the film later (and also at L’Age d’Or) he didn’t see any resemblance to his work and I couldn’t find the words to explain what I meant………whoops.

After lunch we went back to the Nieuwmarkt and sat at a terrasje drinking coffee. Spring has arrived you see.

Then we walked over to the Muziekgebouw aan ’t IJ and picked up a brochure for next season. I like that building very much and the positioning there by the water is just great.
