Thursday - Nijmegen and its Labyrinth

Thanks to Pinterest for coming up with brilliant suggestions when I am looking for inspiration. I have never been to Nijmegen, the oldest town in The Netherlands it seems, although it had been on the to do list for quite a while.

There, in 1982, along the river Waal (where the old harbour used to be) local artist Klaus van de Locht built a decorative, ground level, labyrinth of brick and mortar for the delight of passersby, kiddies, ducks and local photographers.

Apparently there was a plan to demolish it but it was eventually revoked at the end of last year, which is good news indeed because... who doesn't like a nice labyrinth?
