Scheveningen (or Life is a Beach)

The Kurhaus

The first picture is of the landmark Kurhaus hotel, built in 1886 and the focal point of Scheveningen.

A View of Delft


We went on a day trip to Delft, a town about 10kms south of Den Haag. You can get there by tram, train or bike.

Delft is the quintessential Dutch village, so to speak, home of Johannes Vermeer, one of the most famous of the Dutch masters. It has two remarkable churches, creativily called the Old Church and the New Church.

First Impressions

We have reached our one month anniversary here in Den Haag. So far I really like it. It's very quiet, since so many people use bikes to get about. And everything is close. The shopping, if you like that sort of thing, is amazing.

Living Room

We have an apartment rented starting June. It's big and sunny, with windows on both ends, 9 foot ceilings, (standard here), 2 balconies, and a bathtub, which seems to be a bit of a luxury here.
