The Center of Dordrecht, Holland is an Historical Monument. Scenes like this are everywhere to be found. A row of Steamboats on the left, retired lowflat cargo boats on the right, well maintained and mostly likey lived-in. I enjoy very much painting in the core of this Dutch city, it is like stepping back in time. One can smell the odours of wood, the streets are cobble stoned, if it wasn´t for the cars you would think you were in the 19th century!
