day in The Hague
The people of Delft were partying last night and it sounded like they were in our room. Thankfully it rained around 4am and the party people took the party elsewhere.
We headed down the street for our breakfast. It was good - a variety of meats cheeses and breads. After breakfast we checked out the market and bought a few things.
We took the tram to The Hague. We had a walking tour booked with Free Walking Tours - The Hague. We got to The Hague early so we walked around a bit. James needed to find an Apple store because, in the rush of leaving, he forgot a plug at home. It was in the beautiful Passage area.
We were told to meet for the tour at the Willem of Orange statue. Turns out the Dutch really like Willem and there is more than one statue of him. We didn’t read the meeting point directions very well and were waiting at the wrong Willem. Oops. We eventually found our tour -whew! The tour was about 2 hours and gave a great overview of some of the sights of Den Haag.
We saw many of the sites and we learned that the king sometimes flies for KLM. He has to get 500 hours in per year in order to keep his license. We visited the world’s smallest park.
Our guide recommended apple pie at a cafe so we had to try it out. We take apple pie recommendations seriously. Delicious! James decided to try the herring. He said it was good. You can watch below and you be the judge.
Back in Delft we went though Old Church. Vermeer is buried here and so is Leeuwenhoek.
We decided to stay in for dinner - buns, cheese, dips, salami and almond cookies for dessert..
