The Hague – van Blankenburgstraat

the-hagueHome of Rietje van Brakel, my great aunt, and her husband, Jan van Goor, built by his father.  I was able to meet and get to know the nice family that bought the House from my Great Uncle, Jan van Goor.  When I was a girl living in Paris, we spent many good times in the House with family.  My Father was assistant Air Attache at the American Embassy in Paris; I attended the Lycee de L’OTAN for the children of the NATO Generals and Embassy Officials.  Later, when living in Brussels, we visited back and forth between The Hague and Brussels.  This trip, I stayed in the town of Kijkduin on the beach of the North Sea in the hotel where my parents and I stayed in the 1970s and 1980s.
