015: Misty Waalkade
When I was in Nijmegen in March 2010, for my final preparations prior to my PhD defense, the very cold days started with heavy mist. Despite being a native Dutch, it was very hard for me to stand the cold. I wore several layers of shirts and sweaters under my winter coat. It was only one week earlier that I was enjoying tropical summer days in Brazil. But this giant thermal shock didn’t stop me from walking around in Nijmegen on such a wintry day. The sunlight was very weak and had big trouble to dissolve the mist clouds. Especially along the Waalkade, the quays along the Waal River, where it was impossible to see the other side of the river. Even de water surface was covered with thin layers of mist clouds.
