Theo and I rode from Amsterdam to Haarlem in first class. For the 15 minute journey we were arrogant about our self importance and refused to look at passengers riding in other areas.
We arrived intact and spent our first wonderful night with mum’s cousin Jilley and her family.
After a wonderful birthday party in the morning we set off to explore dykes and windmills.
These things really are a marvel of engineering. This mill is crushing calcite ore into chalk powder.
