Yesterday, we celebrated the 20th anniversary of the Association De Lijn.
Originally this festivity should be held on board of the s.s. Rotterdam, but
as you all know, the ship will not be available before the end of this year.
I did hear some news. The owners are in legally combat with Imtech to end
the contract. As you might know, there is a conflict about more work than
originally planned and Imtech wanted a higher price.
Meanwhile, the owners have signed a convenant with an other company, GTI.
But as the contract with Imtech has not yet closed, GTI cannot start the
work, so unfortunately it will take some time.
I also heard that all stuff that was stored in the shelters and on the quays
in Wilhelmshaven, are now transported to Rotterdam and stored in shelters
and on the quay at Katendrecht.
This morning, my friend Leon made following photo.

Your photo crashed. It's sad to see such news.
