An old house..
An old Dutch house.

After a really solid night out on the town on Thursday with Jonathan in Arnhem, I was feeling weak and weary this morning (Friday). Woke up, had breakfast and off I went in the car with Joke to see some things. Our first stop was the Openluchtmuseum (open air museum).
Well i mentioned my journey to Beamish in Durham, well this was much the same from a Dutch perspective. Plenty of old trams, old windmills, model houses and the like. We arrived here around about 11am, and met up with Jojanekke for the day, who was nice and really good fun.
After the Openluchtmuseum, we headed to the Kroller-Muller museum. This place had a fine art collection of paintings, sculptures, and other art forms, including many pieces by van Gogh. We spent a few hours wandering the galleries, before going to view an interesting building likely used as a hunting home for the Kroller family long ago.
After this it was time to head home, for dinner which was really tasty!! Something called "potato different," which was.. well.. a different type of potatoes (like a heated potatoe salad with cheese, ham and other mysterious properties combined).
Then Jojanekke left back for Utrecht, I
Thats me with two buckets over my shoulders. Just an old way the Dutch used to carry water, "back in the day"
watched some television with Jan, and have now decided to turn in for the night. Im wrecked and need to catch up on some Z's. Big day ahead tomorrow, meeting relatives and exploring some more. Itl b a shame to have to leave here so soon.
PS. yeah, i have taken some pictures today, and ill get them uploaded soon. Just cant do it from this computer, as it has no USB plug. so ill maybe do it at some point tomorrow.
