“Calvé Pindakaas” is really the best peanut butter in the world! I and a lot other Dutch persons take it with me when I go outside the country. When I was on my exchange to Ljubljana, my mother brought me 3 jars and I was so happy having every morning my Dutch breakfast.
During this Erasmus semester I really enjoyed Ljubljana. But ofcourse it made me realize the things I miss at home. Mostly the daily life things. Like my friends, sports and my typical Dutch peanut butter. Wouldn’t it be perfect to combine the good things of both places every day? So I put the jar together with the snow, slovenian burek, my bike, cheap good coffee etc.
When I was in Slovenia this jar gave me my typical Dutch moment. Now I'm back this jar gives me beautifull Ljubljana as a daily life memory.
At the exhibition in Ljubljana I showed this pictures inside the jar and asked people to write down what they would miss when they would go abroad for a while.
