Madurodam, in The Hague #2

Here are some more photos. One has my umbrella in it to show size. There's a pair--one with a big white foot in it and then another very near the spot where my foot was.

Madurodam, in The Hague

There's a remarkable site in The Hague, Madurodam. It has many important Dutch sights and buildings and industrial/waterworks all at 1/25th scale. It was really quite something. If you ever find yourself with time on your hands in Amsterdam and in the mood for something rather less exciting than Amsterdam, then hop the train to the Hague and visit this place. Some photos.

Gardens of the Peace Palace

One of the joys of taking all this intensive international law work at the Hague Academy of International Law is that the gardens at the Peace Palace are marvelous. Herewith, a few photos.
