  1. He Marjolein,
    Ziet er inderdaad goed uit die site van je. Hoop dat je dit jaar nog wat studenten weet te vinden voor het onderzoek, hoorde van Jan dat dat dit jaar niet mee viel. Helaas heb ik nu wat geld verdient maar ben ik geen student meer. Mocht je toch veldwerkers in gaan huren dat hoor ik het graag van je ;). Succes met het onderzoek!!!

    groeten Benjamin Backx
