Where I stayed
Landgoed De Horst
The Netherlands in 1 day
During the day, we got an overview of history, politics, entrepreneurship and (fair) trade in the Netherlands. We visited Looije Tomaten (at Maasdijk) near Dan Haag (The Hague). Looije Tomaten is company which grows cherry tomatoes in controlled environment (Green House). Our experience at their green house was amazing. I will write about this sometime later. Enjoy photos till then!
On the way to De Horst, our TourGuide, Mr. Vicror van Kleef shared history and political aspects of Holland. We had lunch at Op Hodenpijl, an organic restaurant near Schipuiden. The restaurant is attached to a church without statue/photo is Juses Christ
Later we visited Den Haag (The Hague), administrative capital of the Netherlands. We saw Dutch Parliament Building, Prime Minister’s Office and the place where parliamentarians work and meet people. We got an insight in to political system in the Netherlands. We also visited Queen’s Office and her park behind her office.
Later there was an orientation on fair trade by SharePeople’s alliance partner, Yente. We visited a fair trade shop, Waar. I skipped Dutch pan cake dinner at De Wensput (at Doorn) as it was too much during the day. I had to prepare for my sector visit and update this blog.
