Barcelona proves resilient after the terrorist attack on the Ramblas 2 weeks ago. There’s still much grief, but luckily life went also on. Still, impressive to see. I am not only eating delicious calamari here, but also working, on an interview with zoologist artist Zhao Renhui and my weekly radio column, this time on the Afsluitdijk. Also, I saw this week the brandnew Circl Pavillion of ABN Amro at the Zuidas in Amsterdam. Although…brandnew…? Everything is made from used materials, even jeans from the employees!

As a journalist, it’s important for me to stay curious about new forms of storytelling. Vlogs (videoblogs) are a fascinating medium, because they challenge me to tell my story in more ways than just sharing information. My vlog gives me the opportunity to enrich my stories with a personal touch, and present them in the most concrete and visually attractive way possible. In my weekly vlogs I take you with me to interviews, backstage at the John Adams Institute and Stadsleven and to all the events I visit and moderate. I’m learning as I go!
