Suzie and I infront of windmill
After my breakfast which included 
vlokken and hagel (love them) we went
on a boat to the Kinderdijk. On the
way to the boat I had some poffertjes
(like mini pancakes only much better),
these were fantastic except I have
eaten way to much today. The kinderdijk
is an area that has 19 windmills all
in the same small location. This is
such a beautiful and amazing place and
looked like something out of a book,
just didn’t seem real. We went inside
one of the windmills and discovered that
the people that lived here in the 1700’s were tiny. The bed (double bed) for
example was the width of a single bed and half as long. I really loved seeing
the kinderdijk, I bought some chocolates here and some mini clog slippers for
Tashi and Jemma (my nieces).
cool windmill


At the end of the trip it started to
rain so we went back to the hotel, on
the way we saw some trams and took
them to a station near the hotel. The
final km we had to walk and I was
fighting with my stupid umbrella again,
every time the wind hit it, it would
turn inside out (useless basically).
When I got back to the hotel we
planned to drive to den haag and visit
a miniature village called medurodam,
but it started to thunder so we agreed
we couldn’t be bothered. Instead I
ended up calling my Sister Monique
and my parents back home.

It had cleared up during the phone calls so we went out to a Mexican restaurant
on the harbor for dinner. I ordered nachos but it looked like a salad when the
waitress gave it to me. It was very good and there were some nacho chips under
the salad, I just had to eat my way to them.

After dinner we just hung out in Suzies room for a while listening to music
and I uploaded more photos on my main photo site

I really like being back home, I understand what people are saying (makes a
nice change from French and German) and I love the food. I can’t wait to
explore more, I hope driving in the country side will be an improvement over
city driving though.
