illo friday: island

netherlands is made up of man-made islands ?
610 x 840 pixels
drawn on a 6 x 9 cm. paper
edited thru picasa, colors thru ms paint

He *.* mentioned to me before that there were plans in the netherlands to create a tulip-shaped island off the coast of a certain city that is visible from the moon.

now i need to verify this information coz i cant find it anywhere on the net (handicapped by my poor searching skills) plus my dsl connection was down (again!) earlier.

he also mentioned something about a cannabis-shaped island! imagine how it would look like.. a weed leaf shaped island! gee what a trademark! and i used to correct people that they should not immediately associate holland with weed. lol..

The buildings look rustic in a way. You have done a good job showing us what it feels like to be on the doorstep too. :)
