Loes Veenstra is een sympathieke Rotterdamse dame, die in de 2e Carnissestraat in Rotterdam woont. Zij is 78 jaar en breit al heel haar leven truien. Dat doet ze met zó veel plezier, dat haar hele huis ondertussen uitpuilt van deze kleurrijke ambachtswerken. Het zijn er meer dan 500. Als je al die mooie breiwerken bij elkaar ziet, denk je automatisch: die moeten toch echt door iemand gedragen worden, al is het maar voor één keer. Op 10 november 2012 werd op een bijzondere manier het levenswerk van Loes zichtbaar gemaakt. Onder de titel "De truien van Lies vond om 13.00u een Flashmob plaats in de 2e Carnissestraat, ondersteund met muziek uit de jaren vijftig en zestig, de periode waarin Loes is begonnen met het breien van de truien. Het doel van de Flashmob was om 500 mensen in haar straat bij elkaar te krijgen, die elk gekleed in een trui van Loes een lied voor haar zingen en onder leiding van professionele dansers een simpel dansje leren en tonen. Eén keer werden alle truien zichtbaar gedragen in dit verrassingsoptreden. (bron: www.bo-carnisse.org)

This panorama was taken in Rotterdam, Europe

This is an overview of Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.

The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.

Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".

Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.

Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights.

In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states.
