Today I visited Haarlem and the Hague/ Den Haag. The Netherlands is a small country, therefore it is not difficult to traverse the country with their highly efficient railroad system.

Haarlem is one of the most beautiful cities, 15 min from Amsterdam by train. Everything there evoked a sense of antiquity and beauty. The buildings are very well maintained and there is not as much tourists as in Amsterdam. The Hague is where the Netherlands's government is officially located. I remembered it was where a great philosopher Spinoza lived, and is where the International War Crime Tribunal is located. I will avoid filling up the space with words and just let the pictures speak for themselves.
