Vagrancy #4

For the last thing we visited the all famous Gonkgo center.
For real. I was dissapointed. It was just like Ed and the guys at Lodder said. The trees were overgrown, the prices huge...
But they had a few nice pots. Anyway, I wasnt impressed.

Because taking photos isn't allowed there, only one photo.

Vagrancy #3

The next day we visitted my good friend Ed van der Reek in the suburbs of Rotterdam. Ed is a plessent fellow with a nice bonsai and cat (he has nine cats!) collection.
We spent a nice couple of hours at his place.

Vagrancy #2

Our next stop was in Holland, at the Lodder bonsai center. They have a nice collection of bonsai and pots.

They have quite a few pots.

Vagrancy #1

The last week I was driving across Germany and Benelux with my family. Our first goal was the bonsai center in Ascheberg, Germany.
