Your pictures are awesome! I have sent some of the Dutch cousins your blog address. I'm so happy Dad and I took our own personal photographer.

Interesting! Interesting! What great photos you have posted. You said you took 800 photos. Well I am anxious to see them all.

The Dutch people are reputated to be so neat and clean. I especially noticed how windows sparkled and grounds were neatly kept. Jewels you should do a Travelogue with these photos!

I hope to post more pictures in the days ahead but you would get bored with all 800!
