The stars aligned as the sun shone bright last Sunday when we went to Vondelpark to get a dose of Vitamin D, along with the mass of humanity that converged that day. In reality, even with the park teeming with people, it didn’t feel crowded at all. It reminded me of that final scene in Mission Impossible 2 when Tom Cruise walked through the crowded park in Sydney to meet Thandi Newton, or that opening scene when Richard Gere walked through Central Park in Autumn in New York. It was all good.
It was a sea of bikes and men.
Despite my initial apprehensions, I’m glad my partner dragged me out to Vondelpark. It was just too beautiful a day not to enjoy that all-too-rare perfect Sunday weather.
