Because so many of the cities are so close together here in The Netherlands, we only had to take a short (15 minute) train ride to get to The Hague. The majority of the group visited the Escher Museum, housed in what used to be the winter palace of the royal family, and the Binnenof, the seat of the Dutch government.
A few of our adventurous eaters tried the traditional Dutch practice of eating raw herring with onions (while trying to dodge the seagulls that are extremely interested in this Dutch “delicacy”).
And we wrapped our day up with a visit to Madurodam, a popular tourist site that puts everything in perspective (sort of). It was fun to see the small versions of many sites that we’ve already seen in this small country.
