Tuesday, 6-05-1997
Yesterday I went to Lucaya and in the train I spoke with a boy called
Van der Zanden from Breda. I told him about my experiences with the fox-hunting game in Breda the day I went to Salamanca in April last year. There I saw in the Gaceta de Salamanca an image of the Surrender of Breda of Velázquez in the Prado Museum of Madrid.

In that image the former Prime Minister handed his keys to his successor José María Aznar. 'That are my keys' I realized. For that same reason I keep my attention focusing on the lady with the keys in red and purple that I met at Kensington High Street on 21 April who led me to the bank.

In Lucaya I received key D220 again and I realized that my mission of 220497 has been completed and that banking is the topic now. I read the article The banker who invests in integrity on page 32 of The European about Mr Herman Wijffels.

I know Mr Wijffels very well. Once I guided his son on behalf of his church in an educational project to learn them taking responsibility. I quote some lines of that article. 'Some of Herman Wijffels' best ideas have come to him while he has been on his bicycle. All of a sudden, he attacks the culture of greed that permeates many corporate offices and dealing rooms. He describes a repulsive profile of insensitive sharks with over-sized egos, who are unable to think in any other terms than dollars and who become obsessed with their own wealth. This violently clashes with the Rabobank culture and Wijffels' ethics. "This company has grown tall and strong by staying sober, acting with prudence and in a decent manner." When Wijffels is not on his bicycle, he likes to care of his garden. He attends cultural events with his wife Herma, a part-time literature teacher and their three children. Wijffels supports the framework of the European cooperative banking network Unico, and it may lead to far-reaching alliances between member banks. Wijffels adds "A European bundling of forces between cooperative banks is one of the possible scenarios. Our colleagues are quite receptive to the idea." Perhaps he can develop his argument when he goes for his cycle ride.' Indeed a cycle ride can produce important new developments. Also the tranquility of the wood where Mr Wijffels lives. I have spent a lot of time in the woods around his house, jogging and contemplating new ideas. I agree with Mr Wijffels' vision: Integrity on the first place.
