AN ODE TO HAARLEM
After an evening out on the Grote Markt, on your bike with one of your children, at your regular table in your favorite restaurant, on Saturday morning along the sports field and even when you take out the trash, it can happen. A moment of pure love for the city, the moment you know: here I am at home, Haarlem is my city. Haarlem singer-songwriter Raoul Michel has managed to capture this feeling in the song She Has Enchanted Me.
