I often walk past the windmill museum in Leiden on my way to the Leiden University Internationl Student Office, the Student Plexus, the Faculty of Arts, or the University Botanical Garden. On this particular Friday I noticed some ducks, well at least that’s what I thought they were hanging around the historical windmill. I decided to join them and tried my best to not step on their poops, wearing a long white skirts and all.


It was quite windy that afternoon and the weather was a bit crazy with the rain coming and going whenever it pleases. I was not paying attention to the wind until I realized the water was getting on my brand new camera lense. I was too busy trying to capture the friendly animals and looking for water lily to show Nye. In the end I was determined to finish my walk and turn off my camera when I felt there was too much rain to handle.
