Notes on the Geography of The Netherlands: Delft: Traces of the East: Photo 19
The Prinsenhof, a museum now. Through the passage, there's another museum, one dedicated to the East Indies. Upstairs, a gamelon orchestra plays. Surely it's a recording. No: it's live. Who are the musicians? Perhaps eighteen out of twenty are the descendants of the same people who set sail 400 years ago for Batavia. Strange: the attachment is stronger on this side of the imperial connection than on the other. Or, maybe, not so strange!
