THAILAND | Thu, 15 May 2008 | By true-claims-stories | Views [3445]

Plotseling staat hij daar, verwilderd en met grote schrik in zijn ogen, vragend rondkijkend terwijl hij het slappe, haast levenloze lichaam van een jongen in zijn armen houdt. De tranquille rust is verdwenen en terwijl een bed wordt aangereden ontfermt ... Read more >

Neerlands trots verzorgt 4 keer per week een busreis naar Paramaribo vanuit Amsterdam. Geheel in stijl vertrokken we anderhalf uur later dan gepland, maar de uitgelaten stemming onder mijn Surinaamse medereizigers werd er geenszins door getemperd. ... Read more >
