Brenda and I left Amsterdam and trained to Delft. By the time the train stopped at Delft station and we made it to the town square it was well past lunchtime. So we stopped at a little cafe called Rossio’s
After our lunch the waitress was kind enough to hail us a cab and we taxied to our hotel, a place on the outskirts of town called the Shanghai. We were surprised (though I suppose we shouldn’t have been) when all the channels on the tele were in Chinese.
Fortunately we were given free tokens to the bar downstairs. When Brenda and I went to get our free coffee we noticed Ice Road Truckers was playing on the public set. So back in our room we fiddled a bit with our TV and lo and behold English started coming out! Huzzah!
Not that we watched a whole lot because we were there to tour!
Here are some shots of Delft:
After visiting the Oude Kerk we visited the Nieuwe Kerk which is the burial-place for The Dutch Royal Family.
Hey! Come back tomorrow for more of Delft!
Thanks for letting us travel to the Netherlands, through your blog posts! God bless you!
You are welcome Deb!
I love looking at old buildings thanks for sharing your photos of the Netherlands with us.
You are welcome!
Too many dead people in Churches today!
They do like their red shutters in Holland, don’t they?
I like the Oude Kerk neighborhood pic best. I’d enjoy a stroll there.
It was a lovely place to stroll and just down the street there was a canal tour. It was a great way to see the city. I would say yes red is a very common color in Holland although they also like yellow and green.
