Netherlands - Haarlem

We were on a tight schedule in the Netherlands - we were only there for 5 days over the long weekend of Ascension holidays - and as a result only had one night in Haarlem.

Like Delft, Haarlem was a very attractive mix of canals, market squares, people on bikes, and had the added attraction of people floating down the more sizeable canals on their canal boats.

We also had our first delicious taste of Indonesian Rijsttafel (Indonesia being a past Dutch colony). In fact we stuffed ourselves silly on Indonesian food on a couple of occasions in the Netherlands!
