Giethoorn

After much effort (believe me, it took me about an hour to figure it out) I made a mosaic for the first time using Flickr and Yahoo. First you have to make an account in Yahoo, then you upload the photos to Flickr and finally you can make the mosaic shown underneath. I used this  Mosaic Maker. I figured out how to use these applications after getting some helpful suggestions from Bloom and Hubby.  Thank you Bloom and Hubby.

I went to Giethoorn yesterday to meet up with a friend, whom I've know since I was 8 months old. We will be celebrating our friend of 45 years coming November! During all my travels we kept in touch.

Isn't Giethoorn (and the Netherlands) beautiful in spring? Giethoorn is our Venice (the Venice of the North).

Giethoorn is an well-known tourist attraction in the Netherlands. In the old part of the village, there were no roads (nowadays there is a cycling path). This little town is carfree. In the old days all transport was done by water over one of the many canals. Now you can hire a boat to see Giethoorn or walk along the footpath, as we did.
