I used to share a bedroom with Ynske. This was even more fun than sharing one with Jorrit, because Ynske was always the coziest of everyone. The best thing was that Ynske was born in 1980.

Her company also greatly alleviated my fear of muggers and robbers who jumped at me from my bed-time stories.

Manege de Bongerd. She still keeps her horse at this riding school.
