Bijbels Openlucht Museum
Sunday 4 April 2004

Our first group outing of the year, at the invitation of CORBVLO, was again to the Biblical Open Air Museum in Nijmegen, just like last year. The Via Orientalis, a street which is made to look like any street in any city during the time of Christ, had undergone some changes, most of which were unfortunately not finished yet. This time we had our stations in front of the so-called 'Egyptian House', a building with paintings taken from an ancient Egyptian temple.

Jean, Gerard, Joke, Monty, Jonathan
and Noel.

The weather was OK for re-enacting; sunny spells and rain showers, with a cold wind. Unfortunately, the weather forecast had been worse, and the audience stayed away. Sometimes the street was entirely empty, and the people that did turn up seemed too shy to participate or ask questions, totally unlike last year. But that low turnout did give us the chance to pose for some pictures, and get a guided tour from Wim around the old buildings and the new, unfnished, section.
On the whole, a good start of the season.
