Netherlands

We left Canada one week ago and this is the first time I have a few minutes to update our adventures.  After getting our land legs in Den Hague we visited Kinderdijk, a UNESCO World Heritage site that has 19 working windmills on both sides of the canal.  A side trip took us to the medieval city of Dordrecht.  We visited the Museum Boijmans in Rotterdam.   A day trip to Amsterdam took us to the world famous Rijks Museum which hosts most of the world’s masters including Rembrandt, Picasso and the French Impressionists.  We needed more and went next door to the Van Gogh museum which is has the most impressive collection in the world.

And if that was not enough we toured the Gemeentemuseum in Den Hague which is housing all the masters from the Mauritshuis which is closed for renovation.  This collection includes Rembrandts, the Anatomy Lesson of Dr Nicolaes Tulp.
