We had breakfast in the hotel today (yesterday we had a One Square Meal on the train on the way to Amsterdam). What an amazing selection! The salmon, fresh cheeses and crepes just begged to be sampled! Delicious!

Today we navigated the Dutch train system and a local bus and took a day trip into the countryside to see Kinderdijk, which is a UNESCO site of the largest number of original windmills in the Netherlands. The windmills were built around 1740 to drain the water from that region (20%) of the Netherlands is below sea level).
