Friday August 23
We slept in! We left the campground at mid morning and rode under sunny and 30 degree temperature. We cooled off with some gelato on the way and made it to Culemborg some 55 km south east of Utrecht, still Netherlands. Culemborg has 3 museums but they only open for few hours a day this includes the Elvis Presley Museum. Elvis was here serving during the Second World War. The marina in this town is quite large and houses many sail, rowing and large boats. We are staying in the marina campground. We rode around the town for the rest of the afternoon and went to get groceries.
Next day the 24th of August, we made it south of S - Hertogenbosch after spending the afternoon at the fair in s-Hertogenbosch. This is the fourth town we have found with the midway rides on the streets. Some of the faces seemed familiar. The town has an amazing cathedral larger than Notre Dame in Paris.
We couldn't help noticing the tree that came through the ceiling of the restaurant that provided shade for our apartment upstairs in Haarleem.
Mozart played this organ when he was 10 years old in 1766 in the Grote Kerk church in Haarlem. It used to be a Catholic Church and today is a Protestant church and it is one of the most historically important organs in the world.
