When it rained in Leiden

Monday was very rainy and we stayed home. Each schoolday, the streets are full of parents and children. This day, in the rain, I saw interesting things. I wish I had been watching sooner, because I got the late travellers. Some are fuzzy because it was through glass, and rain.

There's one of a dad wearing a rain poncho, and the lump in the back has little feet sticking out.

THIS was a mystery. Is a mystery.
A girl was walking quickly, right under the house, in a witch costume with a false nose a la Monty Python and the "I'm NOT a witch!" scene. Something like a carrot, tied onto her face. And she was carrying a basket full of apples.

Rippy suggests it might've been her birthday and she was taking gifts for classmates, as is tradition. Poison apples? I will never know.
