#7 Tilburg, Nederland
by Love Like Birds
No time to rest.
My days were filled with work, deadlines and school
I did sneak into the Austrian salon at the cityhall
So lucky we can fit into a car, no idea how I could pay for all these supporttours otherwise..
So, we were off again.
Tilburg this time
Windows down, singing along with Daft Punk’s new single. The sun is shining and all the houses look like this
An is soundchecking when we get to the venue
She’s a pure beauty
Some friends of An brought her Bossche Bollen, which we devoured after the show
My precious found some time to come along for a these few days
I’m totally hooked and so happy this was only the first of our 5 shows together.
Take a good look at the ball she’s sitting on.
Moments after I took this picture it just snapped. An took a freefall to the ground, but turned out ok.
The awkwardness vanished when she asked us just how embarrassing that was.
Honestly, I couldn’t even get past a 5th of one of those GINORMOUS balls before I got nauseous.
Sadly, the nausea stayed until I shut my eyes to go to sleep.
For the next 2 nights we’re sleeping at this … house – I can’t even explain.
Beautiful furniture, children-paintings, beautiful paintings, weird paintings. The house was filled with little collections, all kinds of stuff people would throw away, but magically found its family here, in a corner, or right in the middle of the wall.
Pieter, our host, made his own travel guitar, which you can take apart and put away in your suitcase.
Tired, nauseous, but amazed by all these little things (of which I’ll take more photographs later) and happy with a big soft bed that I can share with my favorite, I fall asleep.
