Hi Galliya apa!
You crossed your fingers very well! The sun came out today! We met a new TV in the garden. She's called Hollandia and she's a stay-at-home TV.

Hi again!

We had a real statue and monument day. Our new friend Hollandia showed us another part north of the city center of Delft.
We started at the only windmill that survived in Delft. It is called "The Rose".

In the sixties there was a period when the water was very bad in Delft. The city council handed out fresh drinking water to the inhabitants. To thank the city, the inhabitants donated this monument.

"Here rests Louis XVII" the stone says. But that's not true! Karl Naundorff was buried here. He was an imposter who claimed he wat Louis XVII. If you like to know more, click on this link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karl_Wilhelm_Naundorff
