Off the beaten path

We visited the Mondriaan home in Amersfoort and two other art musea with ancillary exhibits about color and contemporaries. The forecast of mostly rain for our Holland vacation turned out to be wrong. One sunny day followed another and another. We walked around the old town which consist of narrow streets and canals, bikes coming from all sides and lovely terraces everywhere. We tried the beer of the local city brewer and has some other food stops. It is a town that is usually not on the US tourists itinerary. We would recommend it over amsterdam wich, in the summer, is a place to avoid.

At the end of the day we drove over narrow roads through farmland and woods to my sister’s summer place just south of Amersfoort, where we woould be staying the next few days with the golden wedding anniversary couple and various friends who had flow in from the US for the occasion.

We relaxed, ate constantly all the goodies that Holland has to offer, like cheese and the best bread in th world, and raw herring and such. Slowly more people started to trickle in, nieces and nephews taking care of the last preparations for the 50th wedding party.
