This will be an especially valued site once global warming raises the sea-level another few meters.

Thanks for posting this. Especially interesting for me since parents are from Holland. I'll be heading over for a visit soon, and this gives me a whole lot of new things I want to see.

Thanks very much for the post. I lived in the Hague years ago (I graduated high school there). Thanks for the memories!

Wonderful, thank you. This is one of those sites that I as a Dutchman are aware of, but never thought of posting as it just never crossed my mind. It certainly deserves a wider audience. Thanks for posting.
