I got this.

- Oh, then we'll have two.

Just put it in the cart.

That one?

- Does it have marzipan in it?


- Not this one.

Do we have coffee filters yet?

- Yes.

Everyone is already inside, see?

Come, we'll run a bit.


Let's see if the teacher is still there.

Yes, she is!

We're late, sorry.

Hi, Kees.

Bye then.

Go with the teacher, then.

- Are you coming, Kees?


I was in the Rosenstreet today.

Jeffrey applied adhesive

plastic to his window.

He often feels someone is looking

in. At night, that is.

There we go.

Well, it's okay by me.

So... Well, shall we?



Kees, you want the shark?

- No.

This one?

I'm going to Zeeland region tomorrow.

Watching birds?

- Yes.


- Four o'clock.

They said... Until a man gets

to here, is is already too late.

Because everything is clogged.

He tells them that it's their responsability.

They throw it in themselves.

Your language is really horrible.

- Oh?

My husband, he is Belgian.

Flemish... it is the same, right?

He is trying to teach our son Flemish.

He is three years old.

At first he was trying it on me too,

but I...

Did they speak with all the farmers?

- We had lots of meetings.

I went up there many times.

It's strange how you get used to traveling.

I'm going from Fayoum to El Minya

every three days, to see my boys.

My husband works at the hospital

and my son is with him, at home.

They just dragged the canal.

The Waterboards take their own decisions

how to devide the budget.

The only problem is that the money

is still from the development program

It will be over in a sec.

This has been happening like

every day for two weeks.

I think we got a meeting tomorrow

with the Director General.

Yeah, I saw it in my schedule

- Good.

Where is the guard?

Thank you.

Sleep well.

- Goodnight.

Are you okay?

- Yeah.

Anna van der Laan.

- Verkerke.

I really appriciate you coming here.

- I felt I should do so.

When is your flight?

At six o'clock.

- Six.

Would you like to come over

to my home for a bit?

I have to go get my son.

No problem.

- No?

I don't have a...


Patricia was a... balanced woman.

She was a calm... woman.

I thought she was happy.

We won't be staying long there.

You always say that.

How is your thesis

going, Sebastiaan?

I spend much time writing.

This writing of yours sure takes

a lot of time, doesn't it?

How long have your been at it by now?

It's not easy, with the teaching

at the same time.

Anna, how was your journey?

I'm glad to be back.

- What exactly did you do there?

I went to see how well the new

Water Boards were doing.

Soon, they'll build a real large

irrigation zone in the desert...

...and I will be writing

a report on that.

Irrigation for the desert? Excuse me,

but that seems like a hopeless case.

It's good that these people can

cultivate their lands, right?

Yeah, real nice.

Wat will they grow then?

Pipless grapes.

- Pipless grapes?

Well, I'm sure that's exactly what

the people of Egypt need.

For export.

- For us, then?

So- colled foreign aid.

In my country, less and less people

are working in agriculture.

The poor leave for the city and

the rich go to Argentina.

And you came over here.

Does the dog really need to

lie under the table?


He smells.

Fred, come boy.

To your own corner.

What was the urgency?

- Well, urgency...

Well, we were asked to

come immediately, right?

I want to sell the house.

- You mean our house?

Mom's huis.

- Yes, so our house.

Hold it now.

Let me finish.

We, Mimi and I, have decided

to move to Guernsey.
