Our day began at the Flora Holland flower auction location. It is an amazing place that auctions off millions of flowers every single day, speeding them from the growers to the customers as fast as possible. We walked a catwalk over the areas where flowers on carts are moved around quickly.
Next, we walked through the old castle courtyard in Den Haag which is home to the Dutch parliament and government. Inside the courtyard is Knights Hall, a special building used by the King to give his state of the union address each September.
After a lunch stop in Delft, we traveled to the large storm surge barrier near the city of Rotterdam. The pictures show the impressive size of the barrier. Our day wrapped up when we arrived in Goes, NL for our hotel stay and dinner. This group of students really enjoys playing the game “Rook.”
