Ulu Moskee Utrecht
Janny Nieboer's insight:

New mosque in the making. This picture is made on March 12 2013. The mosque is built opposite the old bathing house of Lombok, where the Ulu Moskee is now practising. Behind the mosque there will be an appartment bloc with houses for mostly young people, but they must be willing and prepared to buy. Now you can see this project on www.kopvanlombok.nl

But first the name was "Buenos Aires The project is already some years underway. Because the plan to bring the trafic before mosque and houses underground has been on the list for disappearing, probably people have their buying decision on hold. But not buying now is more common everywhere, Houses must become cheaper first. That would be much better anyway. Our church has a warm relationship with the people of the mosque.

This is the museum. Wende is one of my favorite singers from the Netherlands. She is willing and eager to innovate what she does as an artist and not look for succes based on what she already knows to please the public.

She was raised outside the Netherlands, maybe that makes a difference.

Lombok Straatfeesten op 5 mei

Lombok Straatfeesten op 5 mei | Utrecht Lombok & Nieuw Engeland | Scoop.it
Lombox, de best bekeken buurtsite van Nederland over de leukste wijk van Utrecht.

This year the street festivities for Liberation Day (End of WWII) were on a Saturday. This was 30 years after the festivities started in 1982. Because of the Saturday there were many many people in the streets of Lombok, where the party was held.

It is organised in a very efficient way. Streets can ask to be allowed to have a festivity. That streets takes the responsibilty to organize the freemarket. They order marketstalls and people can rent them. They also promise to take all the leftover rubbish with them back home, so there is no big bulk of leftover in the streets. In this way the festival is organised with the help of many people.

There is no more music podium in the streets, only in the ares of the Playground Bankaplein that has a big tent put up.

But there are musicians in the streets that are moving about, as the sambaband Tuti Saxi that appears every year.

In spite of the cold (10-11 Celsius) and a bit of drizzling rain the festivities went very well.

It was a great day out.

Hippocom Tekst & Advies; Niew boek van Joost Mangnus Groeten uit Lombok

Hippocom Tekst & Advies; Niew boek van Joost Mangnus Groeten uit Lombok | Utrecht Lombok & Nieuw Engeland | Scoop.it

This is for people who read Dutch. Joost published a new book about his life in Lombok. In 2011 he and his wife have become parents of a young one. The book is a lot about his life as a father. Very much humour in his columns.

A good read.

A good place to have a coffee, a chat, read the papers or work on your laptop, because there is wifi in the cafe. All kinds of people visit the cafe, that is interesting.

You can take a GPS guided tour through the neighbourhood if you like.

The cafe has existed now for almost a decade.

Every year people in Lombok, Utrecht organize a free market. Only streets can get permission. The people of that street take care of cleaning up. Lots of good stuff is for sale at very good prices. And people meet up every year. The market is on May the 5th. The day, that the Netherlands commemorate the end of WWII.

Concert Wende en afterparty

Concert Wende en afterparty | Utrecht Lombok & Nieuw Engeland | Scoop.it

The concert of Wende was in the Buurkerk, where the museum is. The music was basic, except for one of the clocks (the Moon), she took a guitarplayer and she herself played the piano. She performed a lot of her latest songs from the last albums, mostly in English, a few in Dutch. Very moving was a song about her father, who had passed away not too long ago.

The Utrecht gay men's choit Cantatori del Duoma accompanied Wende in the opening and closing songs.

Draaiorgel diploma (certificate to operate a barrel-organ)

Draaiorgel diploma (certificate to operate a barrel-organ) | Utrecht Lombok & Nieuw Engeland | Scoop.it

The barrel-organ belongs to the museum in Utrecht for musical instruments (mostly barrel-organs). The woman who lives here works there.

The young girl is doing a test to operate the organ. When she finishes one song, she gets a certificate. It was a huge effort for the young woman. But she made it.

We all applauded.

This is the charm of the free market. People invent interesting events.
