Delft

On our way to France, we stopped in Delft.  It is a small city of 100,000 people located about 35km from Amsterdam.  Delft is primarily known for its historic town centre with canals, for Delft Blue pottery (Delftware), for the Delft University of Technology, for the painter Vermeer and the scientist Antony van Leeuwenhoek, and for its association with the Dutch royal family, the House of Orange-Nassau.  Delft is a happy mix of Amsterdam and Bamberg in Germany, a quiet small town with lots of nice buildings and canals which after Amsterdam is a nice change of pace. We got here just before 10am just as the city started to slowly wake up.
