Today Gerben took us to see some of the reclaimed land. The Dutch water management is like no other on the planet. There are pumps everywhere and water as well. Often you have on one site of the street water a metre below and on the other only a few centimetres from street level. Half of the Netherlands is reclaimed land that is only about one meter above sea level and is protected by dikes.
We did stop and had a snack next to these cows. And when one comes over the rest will usually follow since we where a nice distraction from the boring day in the field.
This is one of the many pumps all over the place.

They did upgrade the hotel with big red letters. They do have windows but I think you can not stay in them. Would be cool.
Did cut the 4 figures so you can see them better. Interesting!
The rest of the house is as well
A big church
You better look your bike
The famous Night Watch from Rembrandt
The biggest private garden in Amsterdam that I could find
