Oosterhout, The Netherlands - 24th July 2008

By: Charda

Yesterday was a really special day. We went to visit Charda's grandmother in Oosterhout in the South of the country. We even stayed for the night. Here we are on the train on our way there.

And here's the view still at The Hague Central Station.

Today we walked through the village of Oosterhout. We first met these deer in a small park.

Here you can see what used to be a small castle. Nowadays it's just a building with some apartments and offices.

This statue is in honour of all the men who are fifty years old. Apparently they have the tradition in this town to visit this statue once a year with all the fifty-year-old men. The mayor is also there and he will give a speech. And after that they will party together ;)

This statue looks a little scary, but we were brave enough to take a picture with it :)

These persons were a lot nicer than the ghosts of the other statue. This statue was made in remembrance of the Second World War.
