In one of the shops I saw a klompen (wooden shoe) making demonstration which was pretty cool. The best part was when they guy showed how the wood is still really wet and needs to dry out for a few months by putting his face in the hole of the newly carved shoe and blowing, causing water to drip out! It was kind of gross in a way but still really cool.
I wandered around a bit, but I was really cold, as I forgot that the wind can really bite into you. So I decided to rent a bike for a while as that way I would have something to do beyond just taking photos. I was hoping to make it to the other side of the river, but my geography skills weren't up to the task. I ended up going around some big field which was better anyway. It was a really peaceful and easy ride. The land is so flat that the riding is easy and with all the bike paths I don't feel like I am about to die like I would in the states. It's been a while since getting on a bike, but I got comfortable pretty quickly (though I definitely don't get on and off as gracefully as the dutch).

Afterwards I met up with a couchsurfer for a beer.
Another great day in the Netherlands.
