So many nice canal photos:
Here's the Anne Frank house from across the canal:
And here's Diane standing in front of the Anne Frank house:
You are not allowed to take pictures inside the house. If anyone is interested you can go to this website and you can take a virtual tour: http://www.annefrank.org/en/Subsites/Home/ (sorry, I can't link to it).
I was so sorry to miss this tour in person, but the website is great.
It's just so heartbreaking to think of the Frank family going behind those doors and not venturing out until forced to do so, and then transported to concentration camps, and eventual death for all but one.
I don't know why I feel so drawn to tour their hideout, but I'm determined to get there one day.
Diane and Steve said there were more bicycles than cars on the streets:
I'm intrigued by this one below. Is it a stroller/bike? Or is it more of a wagon or cart? Interesting.
This next photo was the breakfast buffet in their hotel. A little more elaborate than the breakfast buffets in the hotels I've stayed at:
Now I'm getting hungry!
Now this is what first comes to mind when I think of The Netherlands! Windmills...
...and wooden shoes!
Thank you, Diane, Steve, and Will! It was an amazing trip! And I had a wonderful time!
