The Netherlands 2003

Pictures taken on a vacation to The Netherlands in June 2003. I was there for 12 nights, but considering the time I didn't take all that many pictures. Some days I didn't take any at all. The problem was everything was pretty, and not being able to take pictures of everything, I often took pictures of none.

1: When I arrived in Haarlem these wedding musicians were playing outside the place where I rented my bicycle.
