I just got back from the land of Nether, where my nerdy and handsome fiancee Elger Abbink lives. I wanted my mother to finally meet his family, so I convinced her to join me on this trip, which was truly wonderful. She took to it very naturally. I always love being there, the profound flatness of the landscapes are a natural backdrop for contrasting ultra-modern and historic architecture, and colors all stand out. This makes my 10th trip, and it keeps getting better every time.
