    Bad luck – column

    A classic friendly address

    Eetcafé de Nieuwe Ruysch on the Apeldoorns Canal is a classic friendly stop. But how friendly the owner is was proven last night. While a classic driver stranded with a broken gearbox at closing time at the intersection where the catering facility is located, the owner provided a cup of coffee and left […] More
