Winter in The Hague

On my way to the cinema yesterday, coming upon a scene of people enjoying their Saturday out on the ice, I stopped to take a few pictures.

The film we went to see was The Iron Lady, and it was remarkable how creditable an impression of Baroness Thatcher Meryl Streep gave, though the story told in the film was pure conjecture. It hadn't read about the film and it was Mum who wanted to see it, and I was somewhat surprised at how much I enjoyed it, and especially Jim Broadbent's humourful role as Denis. I was also quite pleased to see Anthony Head play Geoffrey Howe, though he is of course far too handsome.
