Monday, Sept 26

Jessie overslept in the morning due to a small army of gas-powered hedge trimmers in the condo complex drowning out her alarm! We still had time for a canal boat tour (included in our HollandPasses) before we caught the train to Friesland, a region in north Holland.

We met art therapist Celine Schweitzer in Grou-Irnsum. She drove us around the area and to a CSA farm she belongs to, the first such in the Netherlands, as well as to her local community garden, before we had tea at her house. She dropped us at the train station in Leeuwarden, and we got back to Amsterdam around 10pm.
