... ice-block. A strange sight.

Once in the Netherlands we didn’t have too much further to go. We realised we needed to stop for dinner as we weren’t confident there would be any cooking facilities in our next place. We found a small pizza/ grill place in a tiny town. The homes were so neat with manicured gardens, it was all very different again.
