The Netherlands Pt. 10: Zaanse Schans

Willem and Mirjam Jackson, Son Ian with Brenda

After church on Sunday Brenda’s friends Willem and Mirjam took us to Zaanse Schans. This is the Dutch equivalent of Plymouth Plantation, or Old Sturbridge Village. The houses are about the same time period but people actually still live in them! I am not sure I would pay top dollar to live in a neighborhood that attracts thousands of tourists a yearn unless of course I was operating a shop nearby that benefitted from thousands of said tourists! 🙂

    Between you and Marilou at I’mExcited, I do believe I’ve been bit by the travel bug! 🙂
