"Dit is een vertrouwd tafereel."
Vertaling:This is a familiar scene.
"Ritual" is not a correct translation of "tafereel". "ritual" is "ritueel" in Dutch, "tafereel" can only mean: scene, situation, what is going on around someone. This is different from a ritual. E.g. walking into a pub full of drunk people, or when you catch your girlfriend kissing with somebody else, are both (awkward) scenes (vervelende taferelen), they are not rituals.
