Visited Delta Storm Barriers.

Flag of Netherlands  , Zeeland,
Wednesday, June 8, 2011

Hi all, we visited the storm barriers in Zeeland. a amazing construction, which was build by the Dutch after the dykes broke in 1953 and 1800 people lost their lives in the floods.We watched a documentary film about the construction of the barriers, here was a case of Man against the Sea,Man Won! We all went on a cruise on the Oosterschelde on the Ferry which used to ferry people across the water before the barriers were build.Zeeland is famous for their mussells, covered in a cheese sauce,thats how I like them!! The motorways are great, you are never far away from one, doesn't matter where you live, The new Herring has arrived,they look delicious! Big and Fat!!
Today we will visit the local markets and taste the local specialitys, Ben likes the idea of beer ,which comes here in a 6 lt. keg! We have split up for a few days, the house from Jan and Connie had stairs which were very narrow and steep and the shower  was over the bath, which was not suitable for me to get into. So Linda and I are staying with Henk & Ria this week and next week with Henny & John, all great people and a lot of fun. We also are going next week on a bustour to Paleis het Loo, which was given to us by Carlijn's mother, (they have a tourbus Company) very nice,we are looking forward to that,
Will let you know ,what happens next!

Hi everyone! Groetjes vanuit Thailand. We zitten nu op een mooi eiland, een paar uur buiten Bangkok. Morgen gaan we terug naar Bangkok en zondagochtend begint misschien wel het grootste avontuur van de reis; India. We zijn erg benieuwd! Super dat ik jullie nog kan zien in NL. Ik mail wel als ik veilig aangekomen ben en hoop tegen die tijd jullie nederlandse nummer te achter halen. Geniet van het NL en see you there!
